Leaflet Time vs Distance Edge Weight
This code example shows you how to switch between the Time and Distance edge weight types. To show the difference in the results, a call is made to the polygons service each time the setting is changed and the results are displayed on a leaflet map. Time is expressed in seconds, and distance in meters. The max edge weight is 1800 (seconds/meters) for both ‘time’ and ‘distance’ in this code example.
