Laying the bricks for Travel Time

Now and then, we at Magicbricks aim to awe-inspire our users with new features implemented using best technology approaches. Travel Time is among one of those unique features that any user can experience only on Magicbricks. The quantity of data Magicbricks possesses made it possible to do an in-depth analysis and create a powerful technology unparalleled in the property domain.

Find the home of your dreams in the locality of your dreams closer to the landmark of your dreams.

THE PROBLEM
So many different cities and such a huge deviation in traffic! A property 1 kilometer away in Delhi might take 10 minutes to reach. In the same time, you will be able to cover much more distance in Pune.

THE SOLUTION
Using the property location, we calculated the time it would take to travel within different localities. We calculated the amount of distance that could be covered between any two localities in our database while traveling from a personal vehicle, on foot and by public transport. We used an approximation and came up with the best distances to search in based on the huge chunks of results created and collected. This laid the foundation for Travel Time.

THE IMPLEMENTATION
Using google API, Solr geo-distance formula and the data created on the basis of distance formula, we could eventually find properties on the algorithm created using the latitude and longitude of the landmark.Once we have a handful of properties, we are using Google APIs to give the user the real-time properties based on time searches on their favorite mode of transport.

Our users can count it as another remarkable feature but we will keep on working hard to stand on or notion of changing world with Technology.
