Routing algorithm (Featured Dibo Post)
Posted on February 12, 2014
The question is about how to calculate the shortest route from a starting point to a final destination, taking in consideration a set of intermediate push-pins selected by the user.
As the discussion progressed Depechie explained that he was trying to implement something similar to what can be found on this website. A user selects a starting point. Then, based on the next points the user selects, the app must calculate the best route.
This type of route calculation may not be suitable to do on a phone, so a possible proposed solution is to make that type of calculation on a server and have the Windows Phone app render the final result.
While the thread has not yet concluded, we consider this to be a very interesting discussion that deserved the Featured Discussion Board Post of the week.
