Installation and Usage

Installation via Docker

We suggest using docker to install and launch openrouteservice backend. In short, run the following command under the source code tree will get everything done (for this please clone the repository, running docker via the archive is currently not supported).

cd docker && docker-compose up

For more details, check the Running with Docker-Section. More explanation about customization can be found in th e Advanced Docker Setup

Other Resources


Openrouteservice offers a set of endpoints for different spatial purposes. They are served with the help of Tomcat in a java servlet container. By default you will be able to query the services with these addresses:

  • http://localhost:8080/ors/v2/directions
  • http://localhost:8080/ors/v2/isochrones
  • http://localhost:8080/ors/v2/matrix

Note, that Tomcat running via maven will use port 8082 by default.
