We are using openroutes for our restaurants to check the delivery radius.
For that, we would like to know more about the calculation of the minute range - in that case, by car.
Is it based on low or high traffic, specific daytimes and days etc.
Do you have data on the deviation between “real driving time” and “openroute service driving time”.
I would be happy if you have data that is not representative but shows trends.
But in general, we can say that openroute data shows a higher correlation with real data in areas with less traffic volatility and fewer traffic jams. That would mean that in outlying areas, the openroutes data is more accurate.
The only ‘data’ I have on this, is my own experiences. I’m using ORS mainly to be able to avoid having to use the big g, which works pretty well by now So I’m using ORS a lot to determine how much time I need to reserve to get somewhere, and I’ve found the driving times that ORS predicts pretty much spot on.
Traffic and roadworks are the biggest causes of longer times, traffic lights not noticable tbh. So
Yes, I’d agree, but unless major incidents happen, it would be measured in minutes at most, unless you’re in the middle of prime commuting times. In that case I’d say all bets are off, depending on how densely populated the area is (cities…)
