I'm trying to achieve some similar to Draw a polygon automatically through markers (points) in google maps but not exactly.
Given a set of locations I'd like to know if it is possible to generate the polygon container for these locations automatically. Something like what Google does with
fitBounds method. But if possible, I'd like the bounds snapped to streets. For example:
Given the current set of locations:
lat: 41.87368, lon: -87.65606 lat: 41.87388, lon: -87.65452 lat: 41.87327, lon: -87.65525 lat: 41.87241, lon: -87.65636 lat: 41.87317, lon: -87.64001 lat: 41.87397, lon: -87.64186 lat: 41.87397, lon: -87.64027
my desired polygons would be:
The one in red and also acceptable would be a variant with the one in green.

Is this possible? I'm doing this on my backend, so my question narrows it down to available APIs that could do it. I'm currently working with OSRM, Google Maps (regular and static APIs) and OpenStreetMap.
To summarize, given a set of locations are there any APIs that would automatically generate the bounds polygon for me?
