generates directions for travel from loc1 to loc2, ….
gives the property prop of travel directions.
Details and Options
- The locations loci can be geographic entities, GeoPosition objects, or strings specifying addresses.
- Possible options include:
TravelMethod "Driving" method of transportation to assume UnitSystem $UnitSystem unit system to be used in output
- TravelDirections returns a TravelDirectionsData object, which behaves as a path specification inside GeoGraphics.
- Possible properties prop to request include:
"Dataset" Dataset with maneuvers and other data "TravelPath" travel path as a GeoPath primitive "ManeuverGrid" grid of maneuvers "TravelDistance" total distance to travel "TravelTime" total time for travel
- TravelDirections attempts to find the fastest path between the loci, not taking traffic into account.

Basic Examples (2)
Compute travel instructions between two geographic location entities:
Use GeoPosition objects to define locations:
Compute instructions to travel through a list of locations:
TravelDirections uses "Driving" as the default method of transportation:
Specify the unit system of the output quantities:
Extract property values in different unit systems:
The default unit system is given by $UnitSystem, usually determined by your location:

The estimated travel time can also be computed with TravelTime:
The estimated travel distance can also be computed with TravelDistance:
