Get started

See the package vignette for an overview of the offered functionality.

Local ORS instance

The default is to fire any requests against the free public services at <api.openrouteservice.org>. In order to query a different openrouteservice instance, say a local one, set

options(openrouteservice.url = "http://localhost:8080/ors")

If necessary, endpoint configuration can be further customized through openrouteservice.paths which specifies a named list of paths. The defaults are equivalent of having

options(openrouteservice.paths = list(directions = "v2/directions",
                                      isochrones = "v2/isochrones",
                                      matrix = "v2/matrix",
                                      geocode = "geocode",
                                      pois = "pois",
                                      elevation = "elevation"))
