This page is to bring information about a Mapping and Routing Project of inter-modal public transport in Catalonia

The project consist in the mapping of Stations and Routes of buses, tramways, tube and rail in Catalonia and develop a web system to manage timetables and calculate routes under different restrictions.

The project is planned to begin on April 2009 and progress in an incremental form.

This project will be a series of Final Degree student Projects at the Technical University of Catalonia (UPC) and with the support of the Metropolitan Area of Bercelona (AMB)

Mapping Conventions (just first thoughts)

Many routes inside cities and towns are linear with a 'forward' and 'backward' direction, a start and end bus stop and sharing part of the ways in the route. Since API 0.6 have ordered relations.....

Lineal Lines

The first bus stop is the START T

Circular Lines

Loops in Lines

Routing (first thoughts)

The first step in routing is obtaining the digraph of a bus line from the route stored in OSM. The easiest wheight of arches are the distance between bus stops.

1.- Obtain the route from OSM

2.- Get the next bus stop and add it a a node (A)

3.- Get the next way (role=forward or no role) and add its distance to the wheight

4.- Loop 3 until reach a bus stop

5.- Add the bus stop as a node (B) and an arch from A to B with the wheight

6.- Loop 2 until reach the last bus stop

7.- Repeat 2-6 with role=backward or no role


Restrictions & Routing

Steps

1. Routing between stations (just using route information)

2. Routing between stations (using routes and time tables)

3. Routing between stations (minimizing wait time in connections)

4. Routing between stations (minimizing wait time and number of connections)

5. Routing between stations (4 + tariff restrictions)

6. Routing between stations (5 + arrival time goal)

7. Routing between addresses (6 + finding the nearest station walking)
