This tool calculates and plots the fastest route between two points, by the chosen method of transport. It returns complete multi-modal turn-by-turn directions.
Using the tool
Select the tool by clicking on it, then open the dialogue box under the dropdown arrow. Fill in the parameters, then either:
- Enter the addresses of the origin and destination, and click ‘Run’
- Enter the lat-long coordinates of the origin and destination, and click ‘Run’
- Click on the map canvas once to set the origin, and then again to set the destination
A new layer will be added to the project with the time. This layer is a ‘temporary layer’. If you need to save it, right click on it in the legend, and choose ‘Make permanent’.
