README.md

rRoad

Get road distances and routes with R, GraphHopper and OpenStreetMap.

Installation

Install rRoad within R with:

devtools::install_github("mfontcada/rRoad")

And follow the installation instructions from the INSTALL.md file in this repository.

Usage

After the installation process, you should be able to launch GraphHopper whenever you want from the command line with:

./graphhopper.sh web spain-latest.osm.pbf

Where spain-latest.osm.pbf should be the OpenStreetMap data file of your desired region.

With GraphHopper running, you can get results directly in R:

library(rRoad)
pontevedra <- c(42.4338555, -8.6743651)
coruna <- c(43.3618728, -8.4301933)
roadRoute(from = pontevedra, to = coruna, weighting = "fastest", calc_points = FALSE)

Credits

Made with R, GraphHopper and OpenStreetMap data downloaded from Geofabrik.

Original idea: Création d’une matrice de distances routières avec des outils et des données libres (1/2) | R Géomatique by Timothée Giraud. You should check his OSRM R package for a more recent and better tool on this subject.
