A curated list of awesome tools about transport data in OSM

Contributing :

Please add your tool only if :

  • it is dedicated to transport (Overpass Turbo is a very useful tool, but is not dedicated to transport so please don't add it here)
  • it can be used anywhere (if it is closed source, or dedicated to a transport network or region, please don't add it here)

Data collection

OsmTracker

OSMTracker is the basic and most used application to survey tracks and stops of public transport for OpenStreetMap. For this application, there is also a bus Layout - a preset to easily collect bus tracks and info about stops and bus lines.

OsmAnd

OsmAnd is a general application to use OpenStreetMap. It works well for collecting data, too. Please review this public transport tracking tutorial.

Jungle Bus

Jungle Bus is a targeted and easy-to-use Android app for on-site bus stop collection.

MapContrib web editor

Data editing

JOSM (Java OpenStreetMap Editor)

JOSM is the mid-professional standard editor for OpenStreetMap. It is currently the most complete editor, also for public transport information, especially by extending it with some extensions/pluginsː

  • PT Assistant is the most advanced plugin. It offers visual highlights, a few transport dedicated functions and some validations rules.
