  • We present LPI, a novel approach for finding approximate shortest paths in weighted graphs. The basis of the algorithm is the presence of landmarksplaced at vertices throughout the graph. Each landmark stores the shortest path from itself to all other vertices. LPI works by searching the intersection points along the landmark paths to approximate a path between two points. We show that the paths computed by LPI are quite accurate: within 1% of optimal in the majority of cases, while reducing… CONTINUE READING
