Smart Directions and geocoding

It’s no longer just about the shortest or fastest route, now you can find the most energy-efficient route for your electric car. Smart Directions is an intelligent routing API that allows custom routing profiles to operate as a set of rules defining how users can get from Point A to Point B. This means full control over a key building block for location-based applications. Run the path with the steepest hills for training or visualize only the mountain bike trails that fit your ability.
