RPS DATA - TheProblemsEven within DubLinked no one is releasing the same data.Formats are Different - Fingal does csv’s with extrainformation.The rest of the counties are shapefiles with no extra dataappended
NaPTANWhat is NaPTAN I hear you say?It’s “a database system for uniquely identifying all the pointsof access to public transport in the UK” (DTF, UK)It stands for the National Public Transport Access NodesIt sets the standards of how the information should beexchanged (xml & csv)Its main use is in making Journey Planners
Why was I interestedin this?
What does it looklike?
Mean a whole lot toyou?So what’s the bestthing to do? Map it!
Not all plain sailingNot all of co-ordinates are using the same projection so itslooks a bit like this.I don’t have access to MS Access or ArcGISQGIS to the rescue on my dads laptop, able to extract thedata in the proper format and made a bunch of csv files.
The world covered in measles
SuggestionsThat the NTA release this data in the other release formatof a suite of csv files.Maybe DubLinked could take the lead in defining thestandards for data sharing in terms of file formats information
