Note, only QGIS v3.x is supported.

Set of tools to use openrouteservice (ORS) API's as a plugin in QGIS.

OSM Tools gives you easy access to the following API's:

In case of issues/bugs, please use the issue tracker.

In case of questions, please ask our forum.

Use QGIS to generate input for routing, isochrones and matrix calculations powered by ORS, either via clicking coordinates in the map canvas or using point layers for batch operation.


The tool includes a config.yml to set the basic config parameters for openrouteservice:

req_per_min: 40

The api_key is updated dynamically from the UI. However, if you're running a local ORS version, you want to change the base_url. If your API key is eligible for higher rate limits than 40 req/min, you can also specify this here.
