Microsoft adds Truck Routing support for Isochrone API
News|30 March 2020
Microsoft Bing Maps has updated its Isochrone API to now support “truck” mode.
The Bing Maps Truck Routing API takes into account attributes such as truck size, weight and type of cargo. Not all trucks can travel the same routes as other vehicles and it is very important that truck routes are optimised for the following (not an exhaustive list):
-Bridges have heights and weight limits
-Tunnels often have restrictions on flammable or hazardous materials
-Longer trucks have difficulty making tight turns
-Highways often have a separate speed limit for trucks
-Certain trucks may want to avoid roads that have steep gradients
Bing Maps supports Truck Routing in 80 countries.
In addition to Truck Routing support, Isochrone API has had a performance update where the results are now smoother and more precise.
