Data Services

All FOSS routing engines work only with OSM out of the box. We offer services to make any data compatible with any FOSS routing engine, e.g. TomTom and HERE.

Consultancy

For any use case, we provide the full  package from software and infrastructure decisions,  to hosting and maintenance or just part of the way. You decide!

FOSS toolbox

We're experienced with a wide range of mobility and location FOSS software, including routing engines, geocoding software and optimization frameworks.

Applications in Routing & Optimization

There's a quadrillion reasons and use cases to deploy your own routing & geolocation infrastructure. We summarized a few below and hope you get a few inspirations.

Routing & Navigation



  • Compliant Routing • Let us help you tailor your route network to meet compliance
  • Turn-by-turn Navigation • Receive turn instructions on the device of your choice
  • Customizable profiles • Car, Truck, all sorts of bike types, pedestrian and scooter

Isochrones & Isodistances



  • Geomarketing • Enrich isochrones with market-relevant datasets to provide answers to distribution problems
  • Transport & Planning • Analyze and optimize reachability for your infrastructure and transport system
  • Emergency and disaster response • Minimize the risk of disasters by stategically employing isochrones

Routing Optimization



  • Save Costs • Optimize routes and schedules to save time, cost and increase efficiency
  • Vehicle Routing Problems • Solve the classical Traveling Salesman Problem within milliseconds
  • Advanced • Integrate business-specific needs such as vehicle/driver availabilities, skills or goals

USE ANY PROPRIETARY DATASET OR OSM

Customized Routing

As experts in routing, we're offering the combination of any street data source with any with any open-source routing engine. 

  • License TomTom or HERE data with us or bring your own data
  • Receive data in any OSM data format to leverage the full OSM ecosystem
  • Let us consult you on the right combination for your specific use case
  • Add open-source routing optimization or geocoding
  • Host yourself or let us manage your private setup
