Answers to: Overpass API: generate cyclic pathshttps://help.openstreetmap.org/questions/68926/overpass-api-generate-cyclic-paths<p>I'm developing a simulation which should emulate the movement of cars on a road, emitting GPS coordinates for different cars in a certain bounding box.
Therefore, i'd like to use OverpassQL to generate some "random" (i suppose i will just choose a random starting point myself, since as far as i know OverpassQL does not implement any RNG), if possible cyclic paths for cars to "drive" along repeatedly.
Another possibility would be just a path that starts at one border of the bounding box and ends at the other.
I suppose i could just recurse along adjacent ways at their corresponding ends, but how do i make this cyclic, i.e. ending at the starting point?</p>
<p>I am a total beginner at OverpassQL and the options seem overwhelming. Can anyone help me out?</p>enThu, 15 Aug 2024 22:26:06 -0000
