Routing in OSM Tools


#1

Welcome to all
I have a question:
Is it possible or are there plans to make it possible in this great OSM Tools plugin to calculate the route through more points so that they connect into one route?
Example :
There are several customers on the truck route,
START -> A via B via C via D and more to the META point.

I would be grateful for your feedback.
Greetings
Peter

Hi Peter,

actually I recently thought about smth similar as well, see here:

However, that won’t happen in the next weeks. I just finished a major refactoring and upgrade (release in next weeks). Gotta give a rest for a couple of weeks;)

I actually did it;)

Stable version in the orstools branch. Release in 1-2 weeks:

Hi Nils

I have a problem with installing your plug-in from the zip file, from the given link: https://github.com/nilsnolde/orstools-qgis-plugin/tree/orstools.

The information after installation is: no metadata file

I install from a zip file, Qgis 3.4

Is there a solution for this?

Regards Peter

Rather try the development branch:
https://github.com/nilsnolde/orstools-qgis-plugin/archive/development.zip

You have to unzip and zip the ORStools folder only (you likely missed that step). Then in QGIS Import from ZIP in the plugin manager.

Let me know if that worked.

Actually, you were right I unpacked not what I needed. Thank you.

I am not sure if I understand this tool well.
Is there a possibility that I wrote about earlier, i.e. combining many points into a route?
If so, how to use it?

Hmm, I was hoping that would be self-explanatory. Either interactively via ‘Map’ or via batch job ‘Directions from Lines’ (which has to be a Linestring, which I realize right now should also be possible with Points, I guess).
