Distance matrix API


Distance Matrix API is a web service that provides travel distance and time for a matrix of origins and destinations, based on the recommended route between the start and end points. It provides APIs for generating travel distance and estimated travel time between two or more locations.

Business use cases for developers include:

1. Calculating delivery routes for fleets of vehicles, such as for a logistics company.

2. Determining shortest advice between two addresses, such as for taxi cab services.

3. Generating the most efficient route for multiple stops by a single vehicle, such as for a tour company.

4. Estimating time of arrival for travel across multiple stop, such as for a delivery service.

5. Calculating the time and distance of a complete route or of a partial route, such as for fleet deployments.

Overall, the Distance Matrix API is a powerful tool for developers building applications with location-based data. By leveraging this data, businesses can make more informed decisions which lead to improved efficiencies, cost savings, and better customer experiences.
