pgr_dijkstraCostMatrix - proposed

Name

pgr_dijkstraCostMatrix - Calculates the a cost matrix using pgr_dijktras.

Warning

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 ANY-INTEGER and ANY-NUMERICAL
    • 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.

Signatures

Minimal Signature

The minimal signature:
  • Is for a directed graph.
pgr_dijkstraCostMatrix(edges_sql, start_vid)
RETURNS SET OF (start_vid, end_vid, agg_cost)
Example:Cost matrix for vertices 1, 2, 3, and 4.
SELECT * FROM pgr_dijkstraCostMatrix(
    'SELECT id, source, target, cost, reverse_cost FROM edge_table',
    (SELECT array_agg(id) FROM edge_table_vertices_pgr WHERE id < 5)
);

Complete Signature

pgr_dijkstraCostMatrix(edges_sql, start_vids, directed:=true)
RETURNS SET OF (start_vid, end_vid, agg_cost)
Example:Cost matrix for an undirected graph for vertices 1, 2, 3, and 4.

This example returns a symmetric cost matrix.

SELECT * FROM pgr_dijkstraCostMatrix(
    'SELECT id, source, target, cost, reverse_cost FROM edge_table',
    (SELECT array_agg(id) FROM edge_table_vertices_pgr WHERE id < 5),

Description of the Signatures

edges_sql:an SQL query, which should return a set of rows with the following columns:
Column Type Default Description
id ANY-INTEGER   Identifier of the edge.
source ANY-INTEGER   Identifier of the first end point vertex of the edge.
target ANY-INTEGER   Identifier of the second end point vertex of the edge.
cost ANY-NUMERICAL  

Weight of the edge (source, target)

  • When negative: edge (source, target) does not exist, therefore it’s not part of the graph.
reverse_cost ANY-NUMERICAL -1

Weight of the edge (target, source),

  • When negative: edge (target, source) does not exist, therefore it’s not part of the graph.

Where:

ANY-INTEGER:SMALLINT, INTEGER, BIGINT
ANY-NUMERICAL:SMALLINT, INTEGER, BIGINT, REAL, FLOAT

Description of the parameters of the signatures

Parameter Type Description
edges_sql TEXT Edges SQL query as described above.
start_vids ARRAY[ANY-INTEGER] Array of identifiers of the vertices.
directed BOOLEAN (optional). When false the graph is considered as Undirected. Default is true which considers the graph as Directed.

Returns set of (start_vid, end_vid, agg_cost)

Column Type Description
start_vid BIGINT Identifier of the starting vertex. Used when multiple starting vetrices are in the query.
end_vid BIGINT Identifier of the ending vertex. Used when multiple ending vertices are in the query.
agg_cost FLOAT Aggregate cost from start_vid to end_vid.

Examples

Example:Use with tsp
SELECT * FROM pgr_TSP(
    $$
    SELECT * FROM pgr_dijkstraCostMatrix(
        'SELECT id, source, target, cost, reverse_cost FROM edge_table',
        (SELECT array_agg(id) FROM edge_table_vertices_pgr WHERE id < 5),
        false
    )
    $$,
    randomize := false
);
