Re: [OSM-dev] public transport stop_area relations: have you implemented for routing or another purpose?

2019-08-01 Thread Jo
First off, I'm not mapping stop_area relations very often, only in case of ambiguity. A stop near to a side street, but the bus passes on the main street, or in bus stations where everything is very near to the other objects. JOSM's PT_Assistant plugin uses them to figure out which stop_position

Hello, I work on public transport journey planning software. We use OSM data heavily, but primarily for the parts of journeys outside public transportation: the first- or last-mile or transfer segments. In my experience we rarely use OSM data directly for the transit part of routing. We use

[OSM-dev] public transport stop_area relations: have you implemented for routing or another purpose?

2019-08-01 Thread Joseph Eisenberg
I'm trying to find out if the type=public_transport + public_transport=stop_area relation or *=stop_area_group relation is used by any developer or database user. These relations are supposed to group together features like all the platforms in a bus station or train station. However, it seems

There is a large amount of precedent, for example mapillary, maproulette and lots that I've forgotten. So the answer is likely that while the website-devs are not in love with it, it is perfectly acceptable. Simon Am 01.08.2019 um 13:52 schrieb Nick Whitelegg: > > Hi, > > > I'm just asking

My data quantifier concept tool does use OSM authentication for logins and does not edit OSM data (http://osm.hlidskjalf.is/ (http://osm.hlidskjalf.is/) ). I never read anything where it said that OSM-auth was only for editing. So I have worked on the assumption that the answer would be yes,

Hi, I'm just asking something which was raised as an issue in my Gitlab repository for OpenTrailView (www.opentrailview.org; fully FOSS 360 panorama site which uses OSM ways to connect panoramas together). The person who raised the issue requested that OSM
