pgRouting extends the PostGIS/PostgreSQL geospatial database to provide geospatial routing and other network analysis functionality.

This library contains following features:

  • All Pairs Shortest Path, Johnson’s Algorithm
  • All Pairs Shortest Path, Floyd-Warshall Algorithm
  • Shortest Path A*
  • Bi-directional Dijkstra Shortest Path
  • Bi-directional A* Shortest Path
  • Shortest Path Dijkstra Family of functions
  • Shortest Path Dijkstra Cost Family of functions
  • Driving Distance
  • K-Shortest Path, Multiple Alternative Paths (Yen's algorithm)
  • Traveling Sales Person
  • Turn Restriction Shortest Path (TRSP)

Additionally, ready for testing and to be part of 2.3 official version:

  • Shortest Path Dijkstra With Points Family of functions
  • Shortest Path Dijkstra Cost With Points Family of functions
  • Driving Distance With Points
  • K-Shortest Path With Points, Multiple Alternative Paths (Yen's algorithm)
  • Dijkstra Via vertices

Family of functions include:

  • one to one
  • one to many
  • many to one
  • many to many
