New tool to check a route sanity

Posted by doroga tv on 24 May 2010 in English (English)

We want to use OSM routes to trace public transport online basing on GPS traces, but many routes are not filled-in properly. The following tool may show, is the route ready to be used by us for public transport tracing:

http://tools.doroga.tv/chekroute.php?id=

We are based on hypothese that bus stops are filled in proper order, while ways may be filled as is without ordering.

Relation is loaded from the OSM site using API http://api.openstreetmap.org/ and analized. If the route is OK, the sequence of ways and bus-stops is shown. If the route is "bad" (from our side of view) the reason is shown.

Some "good" routes:

http://tools.doroga.tv/chekroute.php?id=400033
http://tools.doroga.tv/chekroute.php?id=392341

Some "bad" routes:

http://tools.doroga.tv/chekroute.php?id=310060

just FYI: http://latlon.org/pt provides a worldwide overlay of OSM-based public transport.

What about a new scheme, with master route relation, and stop platforms?
