GraphHopper plugin update

Tigus shared this question 6 months ago
In Progress

Hi good day.

I am a GraphHopper user. While I know that it has been done and a great effort is being made to integrate BRouter as an off-line route engine, I think that GraphHopper is still a very good option.

In October a new version was released, 0.8. My question is if you are upgrading the GraphHopper plugin? If you are going to continue maintenance?

Question aside, but related to the topic. Have you done a comparative analysis of GraphHopper vs Brouter, beyond knowing that BRouter allows you to customize the profiles? Example, route calculation time, resources consumed, updating of base data for the calculation, etc.

Greetings.

Good day Tigus,

I'm aware of this topic and have it marked as "todo", but because of quite well working integration of BRouter routing engine, GraphHopper currently have little priority for us.

Hello Menion, first of all thanks for replying.

It is good to know that updating the GraphHopper plugin is in the to do list.

Personally I use GraphHopper for the simple to install and do not require configuration. In addition it allows to generate the data to use basic as routing, so it can be kept up to date (just download a map portion in pbf).

The current locus plugin works great.

I do not know at the level of resource consumption and precision which one is more efficient ...

Have you done any comparative between both alternatives (BRouter / GraphHopper)?

On the page that allows you to use BRouter you can select alternate results / routes, that's a good point. From Locus can you use that feature?

Hello Tigus,

sorry for a late reply.

I also never tested quality of both engines, sorry. I remember I used GraphHopper on my last vacation last-last summer (1,5 years back) and I was not too happy with result for a bike, anyway since then, situation changed a lot.

Alternative routes from BRouter are not currently supported in Locus Map.

I will wait for progress in the integration of the new version of the GH.
