Introduction to routing and directions
Routing is the process of finding routes and directions and performing advanced analyses on street networks. The routing service can solve complex network problems such as creating an optimized route to visit many destinations, finding the closest facility, identifying a service area around a location, or servicing a set of orders with a fleet of vehicles. It can also create a travel cost matrix and find the best place to locate a new facility. To learn how to use the service, go to topics below.
Learn how to find walking, driving, and trucking routes and directions.
Learn how to find the most efficent route between an origin and multiple locations.
Learn how to route delivery vehicles to multiple locations.
