Routing/Travel Time Analysis/Analyzer

Jump to: navigation, search


The Analyzer extracts travel times form matched GPX files, analyzes them and creates travel time models.


 Usage: analyzer [OPTIONS]+
       --db=VALUE             path to the travel times database
       --add                  adds specified tracks to the DB
       --track=VALUE          path to the matched GPS track to process or to the directory to process
       --map=VALUE            path to the routable map
   -a, --analyze              
   -o, --output=VALUE         path to the output directory
   -h, -?, --help    

To extract travel times from the matched GPX tracks use


To analyze travel times use

 analyzer --db=PATH_TO_TRAVELTIMES_DB --map=PATH_TO_ROUTABLE_MAP --output=OUTPUT_PATH --analyze

Config file

Several constants, that affect algorithm behaviour, are defined in the "Analyzer.exe.config" file.

 ModelResolution                    [minutes]

Time resolution of the model;

 MinimalModelDelayDifference        [%]

Minimal difference between adjacent traffic delays. If the difference is lower, the delays are considered the same.

 MinimalClusterSize                 [-]

Minimal number of travel times in the cluster during traffic delay estimation.

 ClusterSizePercentage              [%]

Percentage of travel times in the cluster during traffic delay estimation. Actual number of travel times, that form a cluster, is MAX(MinimalClusterSize, ClusterSizePercentage * TravelTimesCount)

 ClusterAnalysisStopPercentage      [%]

Cluster analysis runs more times with several settings - from the specialized ones to more generic. If number of travel times in clusters reaches the ClusterAnalysisStopPercentage the analysis stops and more generic settings aren't used.

 MaximalAllowedStopLength           [minutes]

Maximal allowed stop length. If any stop in travel time exceeded this value, travel time isn't used in analysis.

 FreeflowMinimalCount               [-]

Minimal number of travel times used to estimate free-flow time. If segment hasn't enough travel times, model isn't created.

 FreeflowPercentage                 [%]

Percentage of travel times to estimate free-flow time. Actual number of travel times used is MAX(FreeflowMinimalCount, FreeflowPercentage * TravelTimesCount)


Output of the Analyzer is set of models, that describes travel times on road segments.
