OpenTripPlanner (OTP) is an open source multi-modal journey planner with a particular emphasis on public transport and bicycle itineraries. OTP combines OpenStreetMap data with open timetable feeds in the GTFS format to create its representation of a transportation network.
The OpenTripPlanner Analyst (OTPA) modules build upon the core journey planner to provide travel time mapping and accessibility visualisation for use in town planning, transport planning, and public consultations. OpenStreetMap data allows OTPA to consider pedestrian and bicycleconnectivity at high spatial resolution, sidestepping the problematic spatial aggregation of data.
Our presentation will cover the use of OpenStreetMap data in OTP Analyst studies, the advantages of working with OSM data, and direct participation in the OSM community by local transportation authorities.
