Hey, I’m developing some app where I used to go with Mapbox Directions API, but I found that Graphopper in my case, calculates better routes for hiking. “Better” means that prefers to use hiking trails (maybe prefers OSM sac_scale : mountain_hiking), Mapbox suggests to use even small pathes which are not for hiking.
So, I decided to try with Graphhopper.
- Did I understand correctly that I can use Graphhopper Directions API or run instance of java app in my own infrastructure ?
- In order to work with your .jar app I need to download configuration file and osm data and just run app and I will be able to communicate with my frontend app via REST api ?
- Doest the standalone .jar app provides the same directions functionality as the java maven library ?
Thank you in advance for reply.
As I mentioned earlier, that Graphhopper genereates better (for me) routes than Mapbox, I realised that when I use Graphhopper Map from https://graphhopper.com/maps/?point=49.239765%2C19.934177&point=49.234686%2C19.936741&locale=pl-PL&vehicle=hike&weighting=fastest&elevation=true&turn_costs=false&use_miles=false&layer=Omniscale then calculated route is the same as mapbox’s (for me not good). But according to your website at: https://www.graphhopper.com/blog/2020/05/31/examples-for-customizable-routing/
when I run your “Demo server” its: http://188.8.131.52:8989/maps/?point=49.239269%2C19.934249&point=49.234912%2C19.935654&locale=en&elevation=true&profile=foot&use_miles=false&layer=OpenStreetMap
as you can see, generated route is different than from first link.
Could you give me some advices how to achieve routing from your demo server ? It’s fully matching my requirements for routing.
