OSM Scout Server Module: Route

Your rating: None Average: 5 (7 votes)

NB! This module is not required starting from OSM Scout Server version 1.8. Its functionality is incorporated into the server.

This is a module of OSM Scout Server. This module contains Valhalla routing engine (https://github.com/valhalla/valhalla).

Please install this module and keep this application installed if you want to use OSM Scout Server's Valhalla routing backend. There is no need to run application provided by the module, it is just required to be installed to use certain features of the server.

The modular approach is used starting from 0.10 version of OSM Scout Server. Modules will not intervene with the earlier versions of the server and can be installed before 0.10 is released.

Modular approach allows to deliver and update independent parts of the server separately. For example, large fonts package can be installed and kept on device while the rest of the server is updated.

Screenshots show the route calculated by this module and, as an example client application, Poor Maps accessing the map tiles and calculated route prior to navigation.

Can't the modules be packaged without a starter to keep it out of the app drawer?

The can, but this packaging was done to comply with Jolla Store. BTW, routing module is not needed at all anymore.

The fonts module is needed ONLY if you use Mapnik. If you use Mapbox maps, you could remove fonts as well
