URL: http://GPUDB_IP_ADDRESS:GPUDB_PORT/visualize/isochrone

Generate an image containing isolines for travel results using an existing graph. Isolines represent curves of equal cost, with cost typically referring to the time or distance assigned as the weights of the underlying graph. See Network Graph Solvers for more information on graphs. .

Input Parameter Description

Name Type Description
graph_name string Name of the graph on which the isochrone is to be computed.
source_node string Starting vertex on the underlying graph from/to which the isochrones are created.
max_solution_radius double Extent of the search radius around input parameter source_node. Set to '-1.0' for unrestricted search radius. The default value is -1.0.
weights_on_edges array of strings Additional weights to apply to the edges of an existing graph. Weights must be specified using identifiers; identifiers are grouped as combinations. Identifiers can be used with existing column names, e.g., 'table.column AS WEIGHTS_EDGE_ID', or expressions, e.g., 'ST_LENGTH(wkt) AS WEIGHTS_VALUESPECIFIED'. Any provided weights will be added (in the case of 'WEIGHTS_VALUESPECIFIED') to or multiplied with (in the case of 'WEIGHTS_FACTORSPECIFIED') the existing weight(s). The default value is an empty array ( [] ).
restrictions array of strings Additional restrictions to apply to the nodes/edges of an existing graph. Restrictions must be specified using identifiers; identifiers are grouped as combinations. Identifiers can be used with existing column names, e.g., 'table.column AS RESTRICTIONS_EDGE_ID', or expressions, e.g., 'column/2 AS RESTRICTIONS_VALUECOMPARED'. If remove_previous_restrictions is set to true, any provided restrictions will replace the existing restrictions. If remove_previous_restrictions is set to false, any provided restrictions will be added (in the case of 'RESTRICTIONS_VALUECOMPARED') to or replaced (in the case of 'RESTRICTIONS_ONOFFCOMPARED'). The default value is an empty array ( [] ).
num_levels int Number of equally-separated isochrones to compute. The default value is 1.

If set to true, generates a PNG image of the isochrones in the response. The supported values are:

solve_options map of string to strings

Solver specific parameters. The default value is an empty map ( {} ).

Supported Parameters (keys) Parameter Description
remove_previous_restrictions

Ignore the restrictions applied to the graph during the creation stage and only use the restrictions specified in this request if set to true. The supported values are:

  • true
  • false
restriction_threshold_value Value-based restriction comparison. Any node or edge with a 'RESTRICTIONS_VALUECOMPARED' value greater than the restriction_threshold_value will not be included in the solution.
uniform_weights When specified, assigns the given value to all the edges in the graph. Note that weights provided in input parameter weights_on_edges will override this value.
contour_options map of string to strings

Solver specific parameters. The default value is an empty map ( {} ).

Supported Parameters (keys) Parameter Description
projection

Spatial Reference System (i.e. EPSG Code). The supported values are:

  • 3857
  • 102100
  • 900913

  • WEB_MERCATOR
width When input parameter generate_image is set to true, width of the generated image. The default value is '512'.
height When input parameter generate_image is set to true, height of the generated image. If the default value is used, the height is set to the value resulting from multiplying the aspect ratio by the width. The default value is '-1'.
search_radius When interpolating the graph solution to generate the isochrone, neighborhood of influence of sample data (in percent of the image/grid). The default value is '20'.
grid_size When interpolating the graph solution to generate the isochrone, number of subdivisions along the x axis when building the grid (the y is computed using the aspect ratio of the output image). The default value is '100'.

labels_search_window When add_labels is set to true, a search window is used to rate the local quality of each isoline. Smooth, continuous, long stretches with relatively flat angles are favored. The provided value is multiplied by the labels_font_size to calculate the final window size. The default value is '4'.
labels_intralevel_separation When add_labels is set to true, this value determines the distance (in multiples of the labels_font_size) to use when separating labels of different values. The default value is '4'.
