Title
(EN) A METHOD AND AN APPARATUS FOR SEARCHING OR COMPARING SITES USING ROUTES OR ROUTE LENGTHS BETWEEN SITES AND PLACES WITHIN A TRANSPORTATION SYSTEM
Abstract
(EN)
Embodiments relate to searching or comparing sites. One embodiment is a real estate search-or-compare method based on commute durations. The method efficiently processes public transportation and real estate property data to compute the durations of travel between the real estate properties and the vehicle stops. These durations are stored. A request framework is introduced that allows to express a wide range of search-or-compare requests. During request processing, the method identifies parts of the commute paths that depend on any real estate property. Because durations for these parts were precomputed and stored, the method can determine commute durations to every real estate property in a scalable manner. As a result, the method rapidly responds to requests within the real estate market of one of the largest metropolitan areas in existence today. Other embodiments in- elude: searching or comparing based on a monetary cost, transportation using private cars, and sites other than real estate properties. A computer system and a computer service also embody the method.
