An archive of overall progress notes of WPs for OSSTIP project at different stages in time.

2013-07-25 (Initial)[edit]

(as written up after first effort to define these with BZE)

Main OSSTIP tasks[edit]

BZE WPs[edit]

Then with each organisation, once we've developed some modifications to Melbourne's PT network (likely in an open source Desktop GIS such as Quantum GIS, will do several custom further WPs based on this common base. So far for BZE these are:

Main OSSTIP tasks[edit]

WP Description Status
OSSTIP/WP1 Initial data gathering and familiarisation: Gathering, and familiarisation, with key data requirements and possibilities Completed (c.f extensions)
OSSTIP/WP2 Transport Informatics tools review: Assessment of key existing tools such as OpenTripPlanner given the needs of the project, see Open Source Transport Informatics tools Completed (Bar better archiving of results in a VM etc)
OSSTIP/WP3 Setup and design of Spatial Data Infrastructure to support project In Progress
OSSTIP/WP4 Display of current Melbourne PT network in chosen tool (In practice, this will be quite closely integrated with previous WPs, especially WP2) In Progress - Mostly Complete
OSSTIP/WP5 Workflow for conversion of GIS data into PT network schedule (Necessary as part of process so that a new network can be visualised) In Progress - Early Stages

Particular WPs with project participants

BZE WPs[edit]

WP Description Status
OSSTIP/WPBZE1 Phase 1 Display of new BZE Network in chosen transport informatics platform. Early planning done only
OSSTIP/WPBZE2 Evaluation of OSSTIP Tools Batch Trip Routing Capabilities for OD Datasets and to be refined decide, possibly using either the OSSTIP platform as a base for Travel zone based O-D analysis, such as in the Open Source Accessibility Toolkit project - or else supporting integrating results back in from other 3rd party tools being explored by BZE. *In Progress*
OSSTIP/WPBZE3 Develop a web-based server to publicly communicate the benefits of BZE's new network, based on the OSSTIP platform. Early planning done only

OSSTIP/WP3 Setup and design of Spatial Data Infrastructure to support project Largely complete - need to add step of documenting VMs of system state

OSSTIP/WP5 Workflow for conversion of GIS data into PT network schedule (Necessary as part of process so that a new network can be visualised) Significant progress (working, but need to document and better automate)

OSSTIP/WP6 Setting up the capacity to modify and extend existing route lines from GTFS to create a new timetable In Progress

BZE Work Packages[edit]

So far for BZE these are:

WP Description Status
OSSTIP/WPBZE1 Phase 1 Display of new BZE Network in chosen transport informatics platform. Complete
OSSTIP/WPBZE2 Evaluation of OSSTIP Tools Batch Trip Routing Capabilities for OD Datasets and to be refined decide, possibly using either the OSSTIP platform as a base for Travel zone based O-D analysis, such as in the Open Source Accessibility Toolkit project - or else supporting integrating results back in from other 3rd party tools being explored by BZE. Complete
OSSTIP/WPBZE3 Develop a web-based server to publicly communicate the benefits of BZE's new network, based on the OSSTIP platform. Complete
OSSTIP/WPBZE4 Convert a refined 2nd version of BZE's network into a GTFS timetable, and display in OSSTIP platform. Complete

Possible extensions discussed with BZE:

  • Supporting a 'demand-driven local service'. Simplest way to simulate this would be to allow modification of walking speeds to much higher than normal.
