There are times when you will reach someplace earlier than scheduled. Since you don’t have anything to do, you may decide to explore nearby places but don’t know how much time it might take. You can tackle this problem thanks to a handy web service known as Cartoo.
Cartoo is a simple web application, integrated with Google Maps, that allows users to find out how far they can travel in a certain amount of time from a given location.
The service is really simple to use. All you have to do is select your current location, mode of transportation and the time you can spare. Once done, click Test and it will show the area on the map that you can travel within with the selected mode of transportation in the given amount of time. The service is not very accurate, but it’s best if you give a gap of 10 minutes just in case the calculations are off by a few minutes or so.
