Student working on a research project.

Developing A Python Package To Visualize Transit Routes

We are creating a suite of tools in Python to help researchers solve and visualize vehicle routing problems. Help is needed to create Python functions that
* Generate a numpy array containing the time required for a vehicle to travel from location i to location j;
* Create Leaflet maps (using folium) that show vehicle routes;
* Create .czml files to enable dynamic displays of vehicles moving around on a Cesium map; and
* Call MapQuest, GoogleMaps, and other APIs to find turn-by-turn directions;

Some of this code has already been written, but it needs to be refactored for efficiency.

We also need help developing documentation for this package.
