TravelTime maps Germany launches

Users of TravelTime maps can now visualise the route within a travel time area

Until recently, users were able to make a travel time shape or create an A>B route. Now we’ve combined the two so that users can visualise a route within the isochrone. Anyone wishing to use the TravelTime API can now see that it’s possible to use the timemap filter to also return a route - great news for anyone wishing to return results at lightning-quick speeds. If you add more than one isochrone on the map you can also visualise multiple routes to this point. Check out our documentation to try out the API and use this on your own app.



Launch of TravelTime maps Germany 

Users can now see where’s within reach in Germany with this new release. Simply navigate to TravelTime Maps and enter a starting location to see where’s reachable within a travel time area. We’re still focused on improving the road speeds to ensure the most accurate results are delivered every time. As it’s brand new, we’re always looking for feedback, let us know here.
