 Planning a route is the core functionality of Kurviger. It is very easy to plot a route on the website. A route consists of two or more waypoints. The Kurviger algorithm tries to connect the waypoints with an enjoyable route. Waypoints can be used to mark stops or can be used change where the route goes (Shaping Point). Planning a route is the core functionality of Kurviger. It is very easy to plot a route on the website.
