Using our Distances and Directions API

This service gives turn-by-turn directions, with many real-life applications. A typical expense claims process, for instance, usually involves the sales person recording a meeting in their diary and then, at the end of the month, validating the journey by going to a suitable website and retyping the address details from their diary to confirm their mileage claim for the accounts department.
