Honor BRouter nogo points when computing track

Andrew Heard shared this idea 4 months ago
Completed

If I use the external BRouter from/ via(n)/ nogo(m)/ to method of calculating a track, BRouter of course takes account of all selected via(n)/ nogo(m) user defined points. Nogo points are very useful for preventing travel through a tunnel or unforeseen detours around a road block.

At present the Locus internal "Navigate To", route planner, and track editor, all ignore any user defined nogo points.

If possible, please pass *visible* nogo points onto the BRouter engine.

Hello Andrew

perhaps i missunderstood your idea

< At present the Locus internal "Navigate To", route planner, and track editor, all ignore any user defined nogo points.>

for me it work with "NavigateTo" as well as "Route&measure"

Thanks Wolfgang. You are entirely correct, as usual. I'm not sure why they appeared to be ignored the other day, but are certainly working now.

It may interfere with BRouter nogo check marks during BRouter manual internal mapping of transportation mode vs profile ( car/bike/foot short/fast ). Each of these modes has independent settings what nogo points are active. That makes sense as they can differ in nogo criterias.


OTOH, I am not sure what happens, if the Locus built-in BRouter profiles are used directly , passed to BRouter as external profiles. It may happen, if the profile matches the one included in the mode mapping files, its set of active nogos is used.

Or, perhaps all nogos may be ignored. There is need to check.

I thought the other day Locus was ignoring nogo's but after retesting after Wolfgang's comments it seems ok. I only use the external BRouter profiles.

Hi guys,

not sure what to do with this "idea". Probably mark it as "completed", because user needs were satisfied here :).

Maybe time of direct support for nogo areas will come ... (soon).

Yes, completed. Internal support for nogo's would be good too. They can be very useful.
