Improvement of new avoided object


#1

Hi,
I want to know which should be the best procedure to avoid some types of roads or some types of obstacle presence in the path.

I start to use the openrouteservice-py to create routing and considering as example that I don’t want to use streets that are tagged as primary (highway=primary) in OpenStreetMap. I was thinking to use the option avoid_polygons and download the data from OSM, should be this the best way or there are others more efficient?

Thanks

Hi,
the best way of implementing this would be to put into the Java backed in a similar fashion to the existing filter for avoiding certain road features. I don’t think there is currently a sane way of doing this at ORS API level.

Cheers,
Andrzej
