Abstract: This paper proposes a just-in-time routing algorithm and web application to en- hance the way people travel by helping them explore unfamiliar cities. We research a method to nd an interesting path from some point A to B via multiple points of interest (POI) and encapsulate this in a web application. There are three components to this body of work. Firstly, we devise a shortest path algorithm for pedestrian paths which is e cient in both memory and time based on the A star search algorithm. Sec- ondly, we build an online algorithm that dynamically incorporates multiple points of interests (POIs) into our route using the Smallest Increase Heuristic and Prim's Algo- rithm. Finally, we combine these components to build a travel web application which when given a starting point, destination and time constraint returns a reasonably ef- cient path from the starting point to the destination via multiple POIs in the given amount of time. 2
