QNEAT3 – Shortest path, Isochrone Areas, OD-Matrix

QNEAT3 is a QGIS plugin that is written in Python and is integrated in the QGIS3 Processing Framework. It offers advanced network analysis algorithms that range from simple shortest path solving to more complex tasks like Isochrone Area (aka service areas, accessibility polygons) and OD-Matrix (Origin-Destination-Matrix) computation.

All algorithms make use of the QGIS3 Python API, especially the graph analysis classes that are written in C++. This lays a positive basis in terms of algorithm performance as the heavy computing (like dijkstra algorithm) is performed using C++ machine code. Other algorithms like polygon and contour based Iso-Area also make use of C/C++ based code like the QGIS Interpolation classes for distance value interpolation, GDAL library for raster data io and numpy for further processing.
