state has long been on my bucket list, so I jumped on the opportunity and opened up my machine learning tool box for another quick weekend project. is, it’s especially difficult to make a road trip that will appeal to everyone.All that was left was to figure out the path that would minimize our time spent driving and maximize our time spent enjoying the landmarks.With the list of landmarks in hand, the next step was to find the “true” distance between all of the landmarks by car.
I also made a road trip for Michigan, and optimized walking tours for NYC and Philadelphia. The saying goes, “A journey of a thousand miles begins with a single step.” Really, that’s not true.
Every major journey begins with a plan: where you’re going, where you’re stopping along the way, and how you’re getting there.
During the war 2,672,341 enlistments were signed with the Union Army and Navy.
The Union Army fought and defeated the Confederate Army during the war.
Thankfully, the Google Maps API makes this information freely available, so all it took was a short Python script to calculate the distance and time driven for all 2,450 routes between the 50 landmarks.
