I have more than 3000 points that spread in in a very big area. I need to find all the points (blue) that are in distance of 50 minute drive time, from the stores (green stars). I want to calculate it in automate way on all the points, and not each point separately.

Not all the stores located on the road layer (brown colored lines are from the Open Street Map).

I read

but didn't found any solution.

I also tried to use the Road graph plugin-with no success. enter image description here


My approach would be to download the OSM tools plugin for which you will need a Google API key.

Once downloaded select the accessibility tab, choose your options (as seen in the image below) and then select your stores layer.

You can then do a select by location tool to select all of your points that fall within the 50 minute isochrone.

OSM Tools has been deprecated, replaced by ORS Tools
