Client-side route planning: preprocessing the OpenStreetMap road network for Routable Tiles

by Harm Delva, Julián Rojas Meléndez, Ben Abelshausen, Pieter Colpaert, and Ruben Verborgh

Travelers have higher expectations than current route planning providers can fulfill, yet new solutions struggle to break through. Matching user experience from existing applications is already challenging without the large-scale infrastructure most of them have at their disposal; additionally integrating datasets such as the road network, public transportation schedules, or even real time air quality data is an even more laborious endeavour. The OSM road network has recently been published as routable Linked Open Data, following a similar approach to vector tiles. We explore several ways of preprocessing the tiles to improve the user-perceived performance of query evaluation. We integrated the results into a route planner for public transportation.
