The Google Maps Directions API calculates directions for traveling between locations programmatically. Users can get directions for different modes of transportation, such as transit, driving, walking, and cycling. Developers can also use waypoints to calculate routes that pass through additional locations and estimate travel times.
New technology and transportation applications have transformed the way commuters, delivery services, fleet operators, and travelers get places. Driving these applications are Transportation APIs, and developers can find hundreds of them in the ProgrammableWeb directory. Here are some highlights.
Seven APIs have been added to the ProgrammableWeb directory in categories including Shipping and Mapping. Highlights include the Lengoo API which allows applications to be integrated with human translation services, and gRPC versions of Google Cloud Vision and Video Intelligence APIs.
