Hello Chris mrchris,
We have recently received a request for a development that would allow us to lay routes for trucks, taking into account the restrictions applied to certain road sections (maximum permissible weight, dimensions, etc.). I would like to say that we find the request very interesting and useful.
But there are a few nuances. Apart from rework routing at Wialon, we need a source from which we will receive the necessary information. Since our Gurtam maps have no information about such restrictions, and we also do not have sources from which we can receive them and add them to the maps, we need a map source that has such information. The main problem for all map providers who have information about restrictions for trucks and can transfer them to other systems is their coverage. For example, we can use Yandex or 2GIS maps for some regions of Russia, or Here maps for the USA and Canada.
I have a few questions for you in this regard:
1. Do you have information about which maps could cover your needs? If you provide us with such information, we could do a little research and see if we can support them (learn about API availability, conditions of use, coverage, etc.).
2. Which application do you need to improve (web, mobile application, logistics)?
I would greatly appreciate your answer.
Business Analyst, Wialon
