Hello, what is the best open and free solution that provides webservices for calculating the shortest path and the POI in a specific location.
Other question :) : can I use MapQuest for commercial use.

Thank you :)

My dear Yahya,

Your questions at this FAQ site seem to be that you want us to serve you each meal that you only need to chew on your own. I already gave you some hints to the OSM wiki, there you can find all informations for your aims.

Please do more investigations on your own, then we can help you more if you get stuck in detail somewhere.

About your questions: Similar to: What is the best car brand in the world??? it is an answer that you have to find yourself, see the wiki.

And why don't you have a look at mapquest's website /disclaimer or write an email to them and ask about their use?

I'm doing a huge effort, but after getting some informations I ask to verify my choices. I'm sorry for using your FAQ even I didn't get any answer in this FAQ and this is very hopeless
