Open Source Router

For those not familiar with the concept, routing provides the path between two locations. Often there can be criteria considered such as time, cost, and so forth.


Project Purpose

The intention of this project is to work towards creation of open source software providing routing capability.

Design goals

Desired attributes:

  • Library Coded in C (or C wrapper to C++)
  • This library could SWIG wrapped for integration into scripting languages, or used in RDBMS engines like pgRouting in PostgreSQL, or via a command line or webservice tools.
  • Architected and designed for performance. An ideal goal would be to handle graphs in the ballpark of 25-35 million edges and able to generate sub-sec responses.
  • Abstracted storage to allow for use of data from various sources e.g. shapefiles, RDBMS, others
  • Support multiple subject-matter domains, outside of transportation, such as utility and telecom networks
