Match a single GPS measurements (probe) or line of sequential GPS measurements (trace) to a road network.
probematch creates an flatbush index of a road network to allow you to quickly match probes or traces to the roads using configurable distance and bearing filters.
- probe - a single GPS measurement, represented by a Feature<Point>
- trace - a collection of sequential GPS measurements, represented by a Feature<LineString>
- road - a Feature<LineString> representing a road, which we may attempt to match probes and traces to
- roads, network, road network - a FeatureCollection of roads
- segment - a single edge of a road. For road A -> B -> C, there are two segments: A -> B and B -> C. Segments always have only 2 points.

|compareBearing||boolean||true||Should bearing of probes be used to evaluate match quality?
If true, the bearing of the probe is compared to the bearing of each possible matching road segment. This ensures probes don't match cross-streets that obviously aren't the same as the probe's direction of travel
|maxBearingRange||number||5||Maximum amount in degrees that a probe's bearing may differ from a road segment's when using
|bidirectionalBearing||boolean||false||Should bearing matches allow for probes to be moving in the opposite direction of a road segment's bearing? This should be true if the road network includes 2-way roads.|
|maxProbeDistance||number||0.01||Maximum distance in kilometers that a probe may be from a road segment in order to consider it a possible match. Prevents matching probes to segments that are too far away from them.|

The result of matching a single proble is an array of possible matches to the road network. Results are ordered by the probe's distance from the candidate road.
Each possible match represents a road that is likely to have matched the probe.
|road||Feature<LineString>||The geometry of a road that may have been matched|
|index||Number||The start index of the segment closest to the probe may have matched (in the road's coordinates)|
|distance||number||Distance (in kilometers) between the probe and the road|
|bearing||number||The bearing of the road at the location that matched|
var probematch = ;var roads = /* FeatureCollection of road geometries */;var matcher = ;var results = matcher;
matchTrace returns an array of
match results. The order of results is the same as the order of the coordinates in the input trace. This means that the zeroeth element in the
matchTrace result is an array of possible matches for the zeroeth coordinate, and so on.
