### Distance between point and path

Hello,

I'm looking for a solution to calculate, on a web page, the shortest path between a path and a point, would you have a solution to this problem?

Have a nice day.

Through the path or in a straight line?

If just want to measure a distance in a straight line, you can open iD editor and press Ctrl+Shift+I to open measurement panel.

If you want to measure the distance through the path on the OSM website click the arrows in the upper left corner.
