Custom Routes: How to have routes that are trails and maybe combined with roads? RRS feed

  • Question

  • I am creating a tool for custom routes.  If I had a route that was comprised of a portion of road and a trial though a field how could I create this in the best manner?  Am I correct in assuming that the routes services always tries to use known roads or can it go off the known path as well?

  • The routing service primarily uses known roads. The only exceptions are if you are calculating walking directions or transit directions. Walking directions will sometimes take walking paths in major cities, but does not support customer paths.
