  4. 4. Bus Routes• We have now identified and tested an efficient and effective methodology to create an open data version of the bus route mapping, with approval from OS. This open data version is based upon the OS VMD road network dataset, which is itself a free open data product.• The data we propose to release would: – be published in multiple GIS file formats such as Google Earth (.kml), MapInfo (.tab), and ESRI (.shp); – contain a separate route line for each bus service; – contain attribute information such as route number and description. – 1:25,000 scale OS VectorMap District
  5. 5. Bus Routes Field name Description ServiceID Unique ID, created from Service_no + “_” + Suffix + “_” + Direction + “_” + Day + “_” + Variation (NB: values can be null, making the field variable length) Service_Key Unique ID, created from “* “ + Service_no + Suffix + Direction + Day + Variation + “*” with all fields padded to a fixed length using spaces Service_no bus service number Suffix bus service number suffix Direction Inbound / Outbound / Circular Day 1 = Weekdays / 3 = Saturday / 4 = Sundays / 5 = Bank Holidays Variation bus service variant Service_Type General / Night Service / Schools / Works / Yellow School Bus Route_Desc Description of the main locations served on the route

  7. 7. Car Parks Real-Time Data Feeds• Proposal to release car parks data: location, capacity and real-time data feeds showing number of available spaces• Feeds are generated every 10 minutes.• Available in a lightweight JSON format• Awaiting for a costed proposal from database supplier• Budget has been identified• Awaiting approval• Approximately 1 week development work• Target release date – August 2012
  8. 8. Metroshuttle Real-Time Location Data• Discussions with Actia• Received proposal• Posted proposal on Open Data GM Google Discussion Board• Gathered comments from open data community and entered into further discussions with Actia• Discussions with Microsoft over hosting real-time data in the cloud (Windows Azure) (TfL approach)• Release target date – August 2012
  9. 9. Metroshuttle Real-Time Data Challenges• Limited real time data available• The position of the bus, stationary/moving• Every 60 sec• Possibly bus running board route information• 3 floating buses that can do any route
  10. 10. Metroshuttle Real-Time Data Challenges• Data may take 60 sec to arrive on TfGM site• Data will be time stamped• GPS location data may suffer drift• Stop information, schedule & route currently available • Buses park at station prior to start of each service
  11. 11. Metrolink Real-Time Feeds from PassengerInformation DisplaysInformation derived from the Tram Management SystemStage 1.Feed of display information for each stopWill come on line as each stop feed comes on lineStructured as a display feedTarget date September 2012Stage 2.SIRI real time feed providing complete schedule/Real time feedTarget Spring 2013
  12. 12. Real-time architecture• TfGM working with Microsoft to develop an information architecture that is suitable to host real-time data• Hosted in the cloud – Windows Azure• Always up/available• Unlimited storage• Enables quick deployment
  13. 13. FINALLYTfGM will support developers where we can We want this to work for Manchester
