Why not ask your question on the new OpenStreetMap Community Forum?


Hello everyone.

I'm contemplating writing a traffic simulation application as a computer science master thesis. I'm planning on using OpenStreetMap data. Is there any way my thesis work could contribute to the project? I would really like to be able to. Any other ideas or comments? Any exisisting projects I should know about?

Sorry if this post is inapropriate for this forum.

Regards, Tobias

As long as this wiki page still exists, have a look at Neat_Stuff -> Simulations -> Traffic

Maybe there is some stuff you can use?

Feedback on OSM schema for this kind of work is really interesting. Tell us (use wiki) what you expected, what you need for your work.

An other people working on thesis about public transport has write one scheme for this, and it's now used on OSM : http://wiki.openstreetmap.org/wiki/User:Oxomoa/Public_transport_schema

You can have some kind of real traffic information with gpx stock.

You can also found interest on transit or routing malling lists

Btw, this is not a forum but a help desk.
