for my master thesis am trying to use the QGIS-Plugin to generate Isochrones from 5 Locations. For that I have setup my own instance of ORS.
Now I am trying to get the distance for a certain fuel load and have it differentiate between highway routes and non-highway routes.
E.g.: When driving on highway the vehicle is using xh amount of fuel and when driving on non-highway-routes it is using xnh amount of fuel.
My thought process was that nothing needed to be changed in the code, except how distance is calculated. When I have a tank with 100l fuel, the isochrones distance would be entered as 100 and calculated with:
newdistance_highway(fuel) = distance * xh (highway)
newdistance_nahighway(fuel) = distance * xnh (non-highway)
All I would need to change is how the distance is calculated and have it use xh or xnh whenever it is driving on a highway or non-highway.
Now I know how to get the waycategory using the normal api, but can I also access it in the qgis-plugin?
Also, (how) can I access the source code, to change variables?
Note, I’ve only been using Python and ORS for this thesis - sorry for any “stupid” questions!
