OpenStreetmap one step closer to having routing on its front page
18th July 2010

Thanks to todays opengeodata blog entry, I just discovered that the site have gotten support for calculating routes. The support is still experimental and only available from the development server, until more experience is gathered on the user interface and any scalability issues.

Earlier, the routing I knew about using the data was provided by Cloudmade, but having it on the main page is required to make everyone aware of the issue. I've had people reject as a viable alternative for them because the front page lacked routing support, and I hope their needs will be catered for when routing show up on the front page.
