gives the estimated time to travel from loc1 to loc2, .

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 $UnitSystemunit system to be used in output
  • TravelTime does not take traffic into account.
  • For the default setting TravelMethod->"Driving", TravelTime assumes travel at the speed limits for roads.
  • TravelTime[loc1,loc2] is equivalent to TravelTime[{loc1,loc2}].
  • TravelTime[loc2,loc1] is not necessarily the same as TravelTime[loc1,loc2] as a result of one-way streets and similar issues.
