Assign drivers to tasks
To build your own tracking app, start with our Geocoding API to transform delivery addresses into latitude and longitude points. Next use Turf.js to assign the oldest outstanding order to the nearest available courier. Once the courier accepts a task, use the Directions API to generate a route specifically for the courier’s mode of transportation.
Use the Map Matching API to snap recorded traces – e.g. from your phone while driving a car – to a network of roads and paths.
With Map Matching you can align noisy traces to Mapbox Streets and be assured that you have the correct waypoints for routing requests.
