pgr_withPointsDD  Proposed¶
Name¶
pgr_withPointsDD  Returns the driving distance from a starting point.
Warning
These are proposed functions for next mayor release.
 They are not officially in the current release.
 They will likely officially be part of the next mayor release:
 The functions make use of ANYINTEGER and ANYNUMERICAL
 Name might not change. (But still can)
 Signature might not change. (But still can)
 Functionality might not change. (But still can)
 pgTap tests have being done. But might need more.
 Documentation might need refinement.
Synopsis¶
Modify the graph to include points and using Dijkstra algorithm, extracts all the nodes and points that have costs less than or equal to the value distance from the starting point. The edges extracted will conform the corresponding spanning tree.
Signature Summary¶
pgr_withPointsDD(edges_sql, points_sql, start_vid, distance)
pgr_withPointsDD(edges_sql, points_sql, start_vid, distance, directed, driving_side, details)
pgr_withPointsDD(edges_sql, points_sql, start_vids, distance, directed, driving_side, details, equicost)
RETURNS SET OF (seq, node, edge, cost, agg_cost)
Signatures¶
Minimal Use¶
 The minimal signature:
 Is for a directed graph.
 The driving side is set as b both. So arriving/departing to/from the point(s) can be in any direction.
 No details are given about distance of other points of the query.
pgr_withPointsDD(edges_sql, points_sql, start_vid, distance)
directed:=true, driving_side:='b', details:=false)
RETURNS SET OF (seq, node, edge, cost, agg_cost)
Example: 

SELECT * FROM pgr_withPointsDD(
'SELECT id, source, target, cost, reverse_cost FROM edge_table ORDER BY id',
'SELECT pid, edge_id, fraction, side from pointsOfInterest',
1, 3.8);
seq  node  edge  cost  agg_cost
++++
1  1  1  0  0
2  1  1  0.4  0.4

10  11  11  1  3.6
11  13  14  1  3.6
(11 rows)
Driving distance from a single point¶
Finds the driving distance depending on the optional parameters setup.
pgr_withPointsDD(edges_sql, points_sql, start_vids, distance,
directed:=true, driving_side:='b', details:=false)
RETURNS SET OF (seq, node, edge, cost, agg_cost)
Example:  Right side driving topology 

SELECT * FROM pgr_withPointsDD(
'SELECT id, source, target, cost, reverse_cost FROM edge_table ORDER BY id',
'SELECT pid, edge_id, fraction, side from pointsOfInterest',
1, 3.8,
driving_side := 'r',
details := true);
seq  node  edge  cost  agg_cost

1  1  1  0  0

6  6  8  1  3.4
7  8  7  1  3.4

(8 rows)
Driving distance from many starting points¶
Finds the driving distance depending on the optional parameters setup.
pgr_withPointsDD(edges_sql, points_sql, start_vids, distance,
directed:=true, driving_side:='b', details:=false, equicost:=false)
RETURNS SET OF (seq, node, edge, cost, agg_cost)
Description of the Signatures¶
Description of the edges_sql query¶
edges_sql:  an SQL query, which should return a set of rows with the following columns: 

Column  Type  Default  Description 

id  ANYINTEGER  Identifier of the edge.  
source  ANYINTEGER  Identifier of the first end point vertex of the edge.  
target  ANYINTEGER  Identifier of the second end point vertex of the edge.  
cost  ANYNUMERICAL 


reverse_cost  ANYNUMERICAL  1 

Where:
ANYINTEGER:  SMALLINT, INTEGER, BIGINT 

ANYNUMERICAL:  SMALLINT, INTEGER, BIGINT, REAL, FLOAT 
Description of the Points SQL query¶
points_sql:  an SQL query, which should return a set of rows with the following columns: 

Column  Type  Description 

pid  ANYINTEGER 

edge_id  ANYINTEGER  Identifier of the “closest” edge to the point. 
fraction  ANYNUMERICAL  Value in <0,1> that indicates the relative postition from the first end point of the edge. 
side  CHAR 

Where:
ANYINTEGER:  smallint, int, bigint 

ANYNUMERICAL:  smallint, int, bigint, real, float 
Description of the parameters of the signatures¶
Parameter  Type  Description 

edges_sql  TEXT  Edges SQL query as described above. 
points_sql  TEXT  Points SQL query as described above. 
start_vid  ANYINTEGER  Starting point id 
distance  ANYNUMERICAL  Distance from the start_pid 
directed  BOOLEAN  (optional). When false the graph is considered as Undirected. Default is true which considers the graph as Directed. 
driving_side  CHAR 

details  BOOLEAN  (optional). When true the results will include the driving distance to the points with in the distance. Default is false which ignores other points of the points_sql. 
equicost  BOOLEAN  (optional). When true the nodes will only appear in the closest start_v list. Default is false which resembles several calls using the single starting point signatures. Tie brakes are arbitrary. 
Description of the return values¶
Returns set of (seq, node, edge, cost, agg_cost)
Column  Type  Description 

seq  INT  row sequence. 
node  BIGINT  Identifier of the node within the Distance from start_pid. If details =: true a negative value is the identifier of a point. 
edge  BIGINT 

cost  FLOAT 

agg_cost  FLOAT 

Examples for queries marked as directed with cost and reverse_cost columns¶
