Date and API Release notes

April 15, 2014

Get Road Shield Images

New API that returns a road shield image when you provide road request parameter values from a Routes API response.

April 15, 2014

Calculate a Route

  • A routeAttributes parameter is added. This takes one or more of the following values:

    • excludeItinerary: Specifies to not return itinerary items in the response.

    • routePath: Specifies to return a set of coordinates (latitude/longitude) that define the route. This route attribute gives the same result as setting routePathOutput=Points in the request and is now the recommended way to get route path coordinates (see note below).

  • A mfa (metadata for alternate routes) is added. When set to 1 (true), detailed route instructions (itinerary items) are not included in the response for alternate routes.

  • Route sub-leg fields are added to provide summary information for the route leg segments between start and end waypoints and any intermediate via-waypoints
