Permissible speeds at the Stuttgart Main station, including its surrounding light rail tracks. OpenRailwayMap maxspeed data is put as an overlay on top of on a pre-installed offline map in OsmAnd (see three easy steps to do that).

OpenRailwayMap (以前は"Bahnkarte"という名前でした)は、 OpenStreetMap のデータを使った世界の鉄道インフラの詳細なオンライン地図です。 OpenRailwayMap は、2013年半ばから openrailwaymap.org で公開されています。

このプロジェクトは OpenStreetMap をベースに、世界中の、オープンな、最新の、詳細な鉄道ネットワークの地図を作るために、2011年12月に発足しました。ドメインは2013年4月27日に登録し、関連するウェブサイトは2013年の半ばに立ち上がりました。それから継続的に開発が行われ、2014年2月にプロジェクトは 新しいサーバへ移転しました。2014年4月には、 携帯電話向けの専用の地図がが立ち上がりました。

OpenRailwayMap は、例えば鉄道、地下鉄、路面電車、ミニ鉄道、ケーブルカーなど、すべてのレールに乗った自走車両を含みます。地図には航空路線、モノレール、浮上式リニアモーターカーは含みません。

OpenRailwayMap という名称は、主にオンライン地図としてとらえられていますが、このプロジェクトは OpenStreetMap にある鉄道関係のデータへの対応も意図しています。整合性のあるデータモデルを開発したり、議論のためのメーリングリストを提供したり、エディタのプラグインを提供したりです。このデータの集合が立ち上がり、データはほかのアプリケーションや開発者からも利用できます。



  • 全世界的サービス: 現状、全世界をカバーする鉄道地図はなく、各国内だけです。
  • オープンソースとオープンデータ: 現在、レンダリングされた地図だけでなく、生の地理データも提供する鉄道ネットワークの地図もありません。現在のすべての地図は、無料ライセンスの下でそのようなデータを提供しているわけではありません。このプロジェクトは、OpenStreetMapデータに基づき、 オープンデータベースライセンスの下で公開されています。
  • 最新かつ詳細: このマップは、クラウドソーシングから有益情報を得ることを目的としています。地元の知識が豊富な世界中の多くの人々がこの地図を編集して、詳細で最新の地図にすることができます。
  • OpenStreetMap: OpenStreetMapに基づく多くのマップがすでにあります。セーリング、サイクリング、ハイキング、自動車、公共交通機関、スキー、電力網などに。しかし、今のところ鉄道地図はありません。


There are several good reasons for creating an open, comprehensive railway map of the world. Just some just cases:

  • Simulation: Detailed railroad data is an excellent source for simulating trains and signal boxes realisticly.
  • Research: Scientists and researchers can use the data to analyse the railroad network, simulate changes and use it for educational purposes.
  • Plans for model trains: This detailed railroad data is a good data source for railway enthusiasts, who want to build a railroad line as a model. With this data you do not need to record the railroad tracks anymore.
  • Enthusiasts: There are many people interested in railways, e.g. trainspotters. For those people this map provides a detailed information source of the railroad network.
  • Basemap for realtime traffic: Other applications can use this map to track the position of trains or to provide a realtime view of the trains' current position. You can also think of applications showing construction sites, detours, blockings and the traffic density.
  • Routing: With a detailed mapped railway infrastructure you could develop a routing application.
  • Public transport: This map and the data are an important data source for public transport applications like timetables, routing, ... .


For the average mapper mapping the railroad network is a bit more complicated than mapping streets or POIs, but there are some suitable ways of mapping:

  • Aerial imagery: Railroad tracks can easily be drawn based on aerial imagery, if high-resolution images are available for your area. With those imagery you can map even great yards simply from home. If you have access to very good high-resolution imagery (e.g. Aerowest), you can also see platforms or even signals.
  • In trains: In areas without high-resolution aerial imagery you can track the railroad lines with the GPS while sitting in the train. You should give attention to a sufficient GPS signal in the train to generate exact tracks (see WikiProject_Germany/Railway).
  • Along the railroad lines: Especially in rural areas the railroad lines can be accessed easily from ways parallel to the tracks. From there you can map signals or milestones fast, easy and safe. Crossings and bridges are also a good possibility to have a look at a part of the railroad line.
  • Stations: In stations you can map a lot of details without risk and easy to access.
  • Other sources: Public data, data sources with usage permission, use pictures from trainspotters or videos from the driver's cab after getting their permission,

Note: In all ways of mapping, you have to respect some rules:

  • Don't violate general laws: Don't enter railroad areas without permission, don't interrupt the railroad traffic, ... . Use just data you can get from public location (examples are mentioned some lines before)
  • Don't put yourself at risk
  • Don't use illegal, non-public, confidential or legally doubtful data sources
  • Don't violate copyright laws and don't copy from other maps

For newbies: You can donate data, but do not know, how to get into OSM? You have interesting information you can share, but no time to do this yourself? Contact us and send your data with a permission so that we might be able do some mapping for you.


A map of permissible speeds with hillshades
  • Three overlays based on numerous backgrounds (including hillshades)
    • for infrastructure (including milestones, switches, track numbers, signal boxes)
    • for signals
    • for maximum track speeds
  • Numerous search features, stations, milestones and level crossings
  • Permalinks
  • Dedicated version for mobile phones, open approach for flexible integration in 3rd party applications (such as OsmAnd)
  • Daily updates, starting at around 1:00 in the morning (Central European Time), taking about four hours.
  • Multiple languages, including: Czech, Danish, Dutch, English, French, German, Greek, N'ko, Polish, Portugese, Russian, Slovenian, Spanish, Swedish, Ukrainian and Vietnamese. As much as 22 translations are available or underway. Translations are coordinated via Transifex.

There is still a long way to go for both the software and railway data. However, there is are already quite some fine examples of OpenRailwayMap's quality:


For mappers it is recommended to ignore the complex tagging scheme and to use the JOSM presets made for single countries. The presets simplify the complex and general tagging and makes it easy to use without learning tags.


There are lists of important objects in different countries with examples of how to tag them. Everybody can add a country or add examples to an existing country.

On these pages you can find country-specific information about mapping signals or working rules correctly. There are also some illustrated practical tagging examples. Everybody is invited to add more countries or add some examples for an existing country.

JOSM のプリセット

For easier mapping you can use the JOSM preset files.

So far, one dedicated JOSM preset has been created. It is aimed at German railway lines and available in the preset directory. There is more information on JOSM tagging presets at the JOSM Tagging presets Wiki page.

Any further presets are very much appreciated. See Contribute.
