Routino is an open source routing application for many different transport users including pedestrians, cyclists, horse riders as well as car drivers and HGV vehicles which is currently available on-line for the UK.

The routing software pre-processes OpenStreetMap data into a format where routes can be calculated rapidly with different weightings and restriction for many different users. Compiling the data in this way means that the UK routing dataset only needs 200 MB of RAM so can be run on small PC from main memory.[1]

The on-line demonstrator allows uses to try the system and tune the desirability of different road classifications and adjust other routing options. The code is written in C.
