Drivetime Zones

Oct 11, 2010 at 2:41 PM

Does anyone know a web based service that can return a DriveTime zone.  Similar to the MapPoint product, which returns

a Shape object.  I want to be able to create DriveTime zones and a polygon shape on the gmaps.

Given a long/lat  and a time,  a series of points would be returned.

I'm not sure there will be. From my previous experience working with a GIS firm the sort of data is stored on a road by road basis. As such you have to go to some of the big suppliers (e.g. Navteq or Teleatlas) to get an entire road network of vector data and then do any derivation afterwards, but to be warned this data isn't normally cheap.
