Our technology has one issued patent and a number of applications under submission. Please refer to the following patent on details on how we are able to provide a high throughput distance computation.

Patent Number: US8744770B2

One embodiment of the invention is directed to a method including constructing a path-distance oracle that provides both an intermediate vertex of a shortest path between two vertices in a spatial network and an approximate distance between the two vertices. The constructing comprises decomposing the spatial network into a set of path-coherent pairs (PCPs) that satisfy at least one predefined property.
