Open Rail Map

Former blog: (domain for sale)

Mapnik rendered uk map of railway=* data. Made searchable by a modified namefinder.

todo (roughly in order of priority):

  • add key to colours (active, abandoned, lightrail, tram, subway, preserved, etc)
  • add local permalink
  • make it routable (using pyroutelib2? Gosmore seems unwieldy and incapable of using railways)
  • find a way of re-rendering only changed tiles, and script the whole update procedure
  • add extra zoom levels (especially important for London stations which are close together)
  • make lines prettier, possibly colouring based on line name
  • pull in national rail data to improve routing
  • increase area covered (primarily ireland to fix routing issues) and add ferries
