Kurviger Routing Server

This section describes changes that we did to our routing servers and that could result in different route results.


  • The calculation of routes is a lot faster now (~50%). You should be able to calculate longer distances as well.


  • Improved ETA calculation
  • Minor improvement of the fastest route


  • Improved routing, to avoid cases where the route shortly diverts from the main road


  • Improved fastest route calculation


  • Improved classification of motorways


  • Update GraphHopper to version 4.0
  • Allow more unpaved roads


  • Improved handling of oneway conditional restrictions
  • Show more conditional restrictions for exotic tagging cases
  • GPX export: additional waypoints are exported as shaping points now


  • Updated GraphHopper to version 2.2


  • Updated GraphHopper to version 2.0, which includes a ton of improvements
  • We now use a higher quality elevation model which massively improves the height graph (bottom-right) and also the overall ascend and descend of the route
  • The elevation in tunnels and on bridges does not follow the hill or valley, but stays steady. (see for example this thread)
  • Tracks with no tracktype are no considered unpaved (see this thread)
  • Route calculation should be faster
  • Improved ETA calculation for motorways
