    hey guys

    i am trying to track distance on mapkit between points that are dropped by a user, so what i am aiming for is the user to drop points around a neighborhood for example and it will calculate the total distance..

    any tutorials that will show me how to do this?

    What have you tried?
    Where have you looked for answers?

    Define exactly what you mean by distance. Walking or driving distance (taxicab distance)? As-the-crow-flies distance (Euclidean distance)?

    Is the runner running in straight lines between points (and, possibly, through walls, for example) or not?

    How about if it is the driving route?
    Is there any API or way to do it?

    i.e. get the distance & time & route.
