I'm currently using the updated OSM tools to generate isochrones in QGIS 3.4, which works well (example below).

My question is just what methods other people use and whether there is something better (e.g. live traffic information - I can dream). I have seen a variety of methods online, but I am specifically interested in methods with QGIS 3.4 - I know it can be done other ways of course but I want to make sure I'm not missing anything.

  • I use Here Map API to create drive time polygons. Since it's a Web API, I have written a python script which takes in a CSV as input, and generates GeoJSON as output. Let me see if I can Open Source it. – Devdatta Tengshe Nov 26 '18 at 4:37
  • Thanks a lot for the replies. Devdatta - if you could open source it that would be amazing. – Alasdair Rae Nov 27 '18 at 7:21
