Topology - Family of Functions

The following functions modify the database directly therefore the user must have special permissions given by the administrators to use them.

pgr_createTopology - create a topology based on the geometry.

pgr_createVerticesTable - reconstruct the vertices table based on the source and target information.

pgr_analyzeGraph - to analyze the edges and vertices of the edge table.

pgr_nodeNetwork - to create nodes to a not noded edge table.

Traveling Sales Person - Family of functions

pgr_TSP - When input is given as matrix cell information.

pgr_TSPeuclidean - When input are coordinates.

pgr_trsp - Proposed - Turn Restriction Shortest Path (TRSP)

## Functions by categories¶
