The service provides an aid to navigation mainly intended for hikers, cyclists, and sightseers. It is intended to emphasize pleasant outdoor activities navigating from place to place via scenic and relaxing routes, while other services default to the shortest or fastest routes. It provides turn-by-turn navigation to pass by popular destinations and along pleasant paths, and it stores user-specified routes for later retrieval and sharing. A related service provides popular locations nearby a designated location.
API methods support retrieving links and paths that define a route between specified locations that emphasizes pleasant travel rather than the earliest possible arrival. Methods generate route-networks to be loaded to GPS navigation systems and translate digitally defined routes between different formats for storing and using the data.
The following is a list of how-to and tutorial content that matched your search term. ProgrammableWeb's how-to content comes from two sources; full-blown tutorials that we publish ourselves and other highly relevant tutorials that we find elsewhere on the Web. This list represents on combination of both tutorial types and if you go to ProgrammableWeb's API University, you'll not only be able to find more, they are organized based on your role (API providers or developers who consumes APIs). If you know of a tutorial that would be of interest to the ProgrammableWeb community, we'd like to know about it. Be sure to check our guidelines for making contributions to ProgrammableWeb.
