How to build a simple routing app

One of the first things you can do with our RESTful APIs is to implement a simple routing app: Enter two addresses, find the optimal route between these addresses and display the result on a map. In doing so you get a first impression how easy the APIs of PTV Developer could be used and what else is possible.

The new tutorial A-B Routing shows all the implementation steps, provides the complete source code and the running app for demonstration purposes. That takes just a few minutes of your time!
