For a servlet I want to make I want to collect data on travel times between different locations to group them based on some parameters. I recently saw the Google Maps API is open to use Google Maps in an application but that's not what I need. Is there a way to collect the information like distance, arrival times between two addresses, and the like in a purely numeric form?
What I mean to say is the description of using the Google Maps API is to embed the Maps GUI but I could be misunderstanding what's being said. I'm a relative beginner and don't know If I misinterpreted the wording.
What I want is a text-only set of data returned. Do you know if that is possible with the Google Maps API?
