This working paper describes the methodological procedure for calculating distances and travel time between the 5,570 Brazilian municipalities using the APIs from Google Maps (Application Programming Interface) and, mainly, OpenStreet Maps. This is an update of the results of Carvalho et at. (2016). The data generated by this work provide relevant information that can be used by other academic works with the most diverse applications, such as, for example, applications in regional economics, dynamic allocation models, operational research, spatial econometrics or general equilibrium models. Therefore, the main objective of this work is to build a database that can be used in several applied studies.
