calculate-route-matrix

Description

Calculates a route matrix given the following required parameters: DeparturePositions and DestinationPositions . CalculateRouteMatrix calculates routes and returns the travel time and travel distance from each departure position to each destination position in the request. For example, given departure positions A and B, and destination positions X and Y, CalculateRouteMatrix will return time and distance for routes from A to X, A to Y, B to X, and B to Y (in that order). The number of results returned (and routes calculated) will be the number of DeparturePositions times the number of DestinationPositions .

Note

Your account is charged for each route calculated, not the number of requests.

Requires that you first create a route calculator resource .

By default, a request that doesn't specify a departure time uses the best time of day to travel with the best traffic conditions when calculating routes.

Additional options include:

  • Specifying a departure time using either DepartureTime or DepartNow . This calculates routes based on predictive traffic data at the given time.

Note

You can't specify both DepartureTime and DepartNow in a single request. Specifying both parameters returns a validation error.

  • Specifying a travel mode using TravelMode sets the transportation mode used to calculate the routes. This also lets you specify additional route preferences in CarModeOptions if traveling by Car , or TruckModeOptions if traveling by Truck .

--cli-input-json (string) Performs service operation based on the JSON string provided. The JSON string follows the format provided by --generate-cli-skeleton. If other arguments are provided on the command line, the CLI values will override the JSON-provided values. It is not possible to pass arbitrary binary values using a JSON-provided value as the string will be taken literally.

--generate-cli-skeleton (string) Prints a JSON skeleton to standard output without sending an API request. If provided with no value or the value input, prints a sample input JSON that can be used as an argument for --cli-input-json. If provided with the value output, it validates the command inputs and returns a sample output JSON for that command.
