pgRouting is an extension of PostGIS and PostgreSQL geospatial database and adds routing and other network analysis functionality. A predecessor of pgRouting – pgDijkstra, written by Sylvain Pasche from Camptocamp, was later extended by Orkney and renamed to pgRouting. The project is now supported and maintained by Georepublic, iMaptools and a broad user community.

pgRouting is an OSGeo Labs project of the OSGeo Foundation and included on OSGeo Live.
