OpenStreetMap

Some wiki edits

Posted by Mele Sax-Barnett on 4 April 2012 in English (English)

While the OSM database was read-only, I spent some time editing a few wiki pages about the project I'm involved in. Check them out if you're interested:

*http://wiki.openstreetmap.org/wiki/OpenTripPlanner - Added a discussion and tables of how certain OSM tags affect routing in OpenTripPlanner, including access, bike, elevator tags, and even public transport and railway platforms.

*http://wiki.openstreetmap.org/wiki/RLIS - Added a link to a recent presentation about the Portland OpenStreetMap Improvement Project and updated some other info.

*http://wiki.openstreetmap.org/wiki/CCGIS

Finally, if you live in the Portland area and you haven't checked it out yet, try out the Regional Trip Planner - it's still in beta but will replacing TriMet's old trip planner soon.

Thanks!

Wow, that Regional Trip Planner looks amazing! I've never seen a public transport trip planner like that. Wish we had something similar over here...

It's an open source project, so check out http://opentripplanner.org and keep an eye on the demo list page -- it's spreading like wildfire and might be coming to your area soon!

Oops, sorry about the duplicate -- it didn't look like the comment had gone through.

I'm amazed at how the city of Portland is really embracing OSM. Would love that kind of support up here in Seattle :)
