I have data of a vehicle route and some data already inserted in the system. I have to find the parts of the route that are already presents in the system in order to avoid duplicate the info.

The data is given in latitude-longitude format. The positions given are never the same.

What do you think is the best method to make a comparison and determine which parts of the routes are equal enough?

Maybe the next image helps: enter image description here

In yellow the parts of the rowute that have been marked as "similar"

  • I am not using any GIS Software. Indeed, another question could be about the best software to do that... – Javier Prieto Seco Nov 20 '18 at 13:26
