In order to microprocess an logistic study about the best path to take, I need to consume, somehow, real-time traffic data from Google Maps.

Is there an "open source" way to do this?

The application I'm intending to develop will start an process to consume real-time traffic data from this source, georeference the data needed for that path coordinates and then calculate, among other variables, the best path to take.

  • At the moment you have only told us what you want to do and nothing about where you have already looked for an answer. You seem to be seeking a software recommendation for which there is the Software Recommendations Stack Exchange. – PolyGeo Jun 6 at 18:55
  • Thanks PolyGeo. I will look a bit deeper about what I need, since I don't think I need a software. What I really need is to access the real-time traffic database, from, preferentially, Google Maps, all in a free way. This is a personal project, not bussiness, and my focus is to calculate lots of variables about traffic, in order to show the best path. Variables: GPS data (in vehicles), estimated time for a complete or partial path (in sec per kilometer), local traffic sensors, among other "smartcity" sensors. Again, thanks for your time. I (or you) will delete this question. – Renan Menelli Jun 6 at 20:12
  • I think you are looking for an open API to Google traffic Infomation. – PolyGeo Jun 6 at 21:46
  • Yes! For it's DB. – Renan Menelli Jun 7 at 0:23
  • I am looking all the answears on this topic (stackoverflow.com/questions/4600656/…)... one by one. – Renan Menelli Jun 7 at 11:34
