Hi, I was using graphhopper to plan a hiking tour and i noticed that the elevation data is only taken into account with bicycle but not with Foot .
Here is an example of a steep GraphHopper Route“6.46km will take 1h 17min 1208m 57m”
In reality this tour would be about 3 hours (on steep trails you have an elevation gain of about 400 meter/hour instead of 4km/hour.
Does anyone know what’s holding GraphHopper back from taking into account the elevation data when calculating walking time? And do you know who is dedicated to this part of the GraphHopper project?
I really hope, this feature will be added soon, since the OSM and GraphHopper based maps are simply the best ones for walkers and hikers!
Hi, welcome to our community. And yes, the elevation is not yet taken into account for hiking (like it is done for “bike2”)

It is basically two things: developing this feature and bringing it into production takes lots of time. I.e. we currently concentrate on other features and hope to get contributions e.g. from people like you
