What is a Credit?

For Isochrones and Distance Matrices, a Credit is an hour of travel time. For Routes, a Credit is just a single A to B route.

 

Isochrones (time-map  endpoint)anchor icon

Each isochrone counts as between 1 and 4 credits, depending on the travel time used:

0 - 1 hours = 1 credit
1 - 2 hours = 2 credits
2 - 3 hours = 3 credits
3 - 4 hours = 4 credits


So for example, if we created a 30 minute isochrone and a 90 minute isochrone, this would equal 3 credits in total.
 

 

Distance Matrix (time-filter  or  time-filter/fast  endpoints)anchor icon

Each search counts as between 1 and 4 credits, depending on the travel time used.

0 - 1 hours = 1 credit
1 - 2 hours = 2 credits
2 - 3 hours = 3 credits
3 - 4 hours = 4 credits


Note, this is based on the travel time parameter used in the search, not the actual travel times to the various locations. So for example, if we run a time-filter search with 50 different locations, and a travel time of 1 hour, this will equal 1 credit. If some of the 50 locations are more than 1 hour away, they will just be returned as Unreachable.

Each A-to-B route counts as a Credit, regardless of the travel time involved in the route.

Geocoding and Map Tiles requests do not count as Credits, and so do not contribute to your credit limits.
