The JavaScript API to consume openrouteservice(s) painlessly!

Build Status

This library lets you consume the openrouteservice API in JavaScript applications. It allows you to painlessly consume the following services:

  • Directions (routing)
  • Geocoding | Reverse Geocoding | Structured Geocoding (powered by Pelias)
  • Isochrones (accessibilty)
  • Time-distance matrix
  • Pois (points of interest)
  • Elevation (linestring or point)

See the examples in the examples folder

Note: In order to use this client, you have to register for a token at openrouteservice. To understand the features of openrouteservice, please don't forget to read the docs. For visualization purposes on the map please use openrouteservice maps.

Documentation

This library the ORS API for request validation. To understand the input of each API specifically, please the interactive API Playground that provides an interactive documentation. This library supports the following services:

  • Directions (routing)
  • Geocoding | Reverse Geocoding | Structured Geocoding (powered by Pelias)
  • Isochrones (accessibilty)
  • Time-distance matrix
  • Pois (points of interest)
  • Elevation (linestring or point)

Installation

Install the library with npm:

npm install openrouteservice-js --save

Or build the distribution file to use in your browser

npm run browserBundleProduction

This will be saved to openrouteservice-js/dist/ors-js-client.js.

Integrate the APIs in your application

Example (browser)

You can either use our bundled version which includes all APIs

<script src="dist/ors-js-client.js"></script>
 
<script>
 
  window.onload = function() {
 
    let orsDirections = new Openrouteservice.Directions({
      api_key: "XY"
    });
 
    orsDirections.calculate({
      coordinates: [[8.690958, 49.404662], [8.687868, 49.390139]],
      profile: "driving-car",
      extra_info: ["waytype", "steepness"],
      geometry_format: "encodedpolyline",
      format: "json"
    })
      .then(function(json) {
          // Add your own result handling here
          console.log(JSON.stringify(json));
      })
      .catch(function(err) {
          console.error(err);
      });
  };
 
</script>

Examples using the npm distribution

var openrouteservice = require("openrouteservice-js");
 
// add your api_key here
var Directions = new openrouteservice.Directions({
  api_key: "XY"
});
 
Directions.calculate({
    coordinates: [[8.690958, 49.404662], [8.687868, 49.390139]],
    profile: 'driving-hgv',
    restrictions: { height: 10, weight: 5 },
    extra_info: ['waytype', 'steepness'],
    avoidables: ['highways', 'tollways', 'ferries', 'fords'],
    avoid_polygons: {
      type: 'Polygon',
      coordinates: [
        [
          [8.683533668518066, 49.41987949639816],
          [8.680272102355957, 49.41812070066643],
          [8.683919906616211, 49.4132348262363],

        ]
      ]
    },
    format: 'json'
  })
  .then(function(json) {
    console.log(JSON.stringify(json));
  })
  .catch(function(err) {
    var str = "An error occured: " + err;
    console.log(str);
  });
 

Or use the geocoding services:

var openrouteservice = require("openrouteservice-js");
 
// add your api_key here
var Geocode = new openrouteservice.Geocode({
  api_key: "XY"
});
 
Geocode.geocode({
  text: "Heidelberg",
  boundary_circle: { lat_lng: [49.412388, 8.681247], radius: 50 },
  boundary_bbox: [[49.260929, 8.40063], [49.504102, 8.941707]],
  boundary_country: ["DE"]
})
  .then(function(response) {
    console.log("response", JSON.stringify(response));
  })
  .catch(function(err) {
    var str = "An error occured: " + err;
    console.log(str);
  });
 
Geocode.clear();
 
Geocode.reverseGeocode({
  point: { lat_lng: [49.412388, 8.681247], radius: 50 },
  boundary_country: ["DE"]
})
  .then(function(response) {
    console.log("response", JSON.stringify(response));
  })
  .catch(function(err) {
    var str = "An error occured: " + err;
    console.log(str);
  });
 
Geocode.clear();
 
Geocode.structuredGeocode({
  locality: "Heidelberg"
})
  .then(function(response) {
    console.log("response", JSON.stringify(response));
  })
  .catch(function(err) {
    var str = "An error occured: " + err;
    console.log(str);
  });

Query isochrones:

var openrouteservice = require("openrouteservice-js");
 
// add your api_key here
var Isochrones = new openrouteservice.Isochrones({
  api_key: "XY"
});
 
Isochrones.calculate({
    locations: [[8.690958, 49.404662], [8.687868, 49.390139]],
    profile: 'driving-car',

    console.log("response", response);
  })
  .catch(function(err) {
    var str = "An error occured: " + err;
    console.log(str);
  });

Or fetch a time-distance matrix:

var openrouteservice = require("openrouteservice-js");
 
// add your api_key here
var Matrix = new openrouteservice.Matrix({
  api_key: "XY"
});
 
Matrix.calculate({
  locations: [[8.690958, 49.404662], [8.687868, 49.390139], [8.687868, 49.390133]],
  profile: "driving-car",
  sources: ['all'],
  destinations: ['all']
})
  .then(function(response) {
    console.log("response", response);
  })
  .catch(function(err) {
    var str = "An error occured: " + err;
    console.log(str);
  });

Or return elevation data from a geojson line:

var openrouteservice = require("openrouteservice-js");
 
// add your api_key here
var Elevation = new openrouteservice.Elevation({
  api_key: "XY"
});
 
Elevation.lineElevation({
  format_in: 'geojson',
  format_out: 'geojson',
  geometry: {
    coordinates: [[13.349762, 38.11295], [12.638397, 37.645772]],
    type: 'LineString'
  }
})
  .then(function(response) {
    console.log('response', JSON.stringify(response));
  })
  .catch(function(err) {
    var str = 'An error occured: ' + err;
    console.log(str)
  });

Running Tests

You can run all tests via npm test. If you only want to run a single spec file, you can use the --spec option, e.g., npm test --spec spec/OrsDirectionsSpec.js.
