OpenStreetMap and London

Postby mercalia » 12 Jun 2020, 2:11pm

It seems that by the end of the year all of tfls Cycling InfraStructure Database will go into OpenStreetMap - 240,000 pieces of cycling infrastucture, 146,000 cycle parking spaces, 2,000km of cycling routes. So OSM based route planners like Cyclestreets.net and Cycletravel should work better in London.

Indeed, and exactly those two route-planners are at the heart of it - I've been working on this for a couple of months together with Martin from CycleStreets. https://github.com/cyclestreets/tflcid-conversion for those of a technical bent who are interested in the gory details.

Is there a standard schema for a Cycling Infrastructure Database? Or is this a TFL thing? I'm just wondering, well, hoping really, that there might be a similar database in my neck of the woods and we could go through the same process.
