Location based services have become a key business for which data and tools are equally important. OpenStreeMap is both the data source, and a testing ground for mapping technologies. Whatever data source you deploy and idea you build around, choosing the right tools can be tricky. Cartonama Workshop is an intense training that will help you explore the best tools out there to manage and make the most out of your data .
Routing (Directions) fundamentals
This session should give an better understanding of how routing/directions services work, what data do they work on, and what techniques could be employed to make routing better.
This session should cover how routing is typically done in map services.
A suggested flow
- Introduction to popular routing algorithms
- What kind of data is required to build a routing solution, say, given OSM map data
- What are various techniques employed to improve routing usefulness (e.g. landmark based routing, tuning variables)
- A quick summary of routing algos/libraries for OSM
I’m proposing this, i can’t talk about this :-(
