Simcity updates, March
The highlight of the this release is Lausanne public transport simulator. The motivation behind this project was the beautiful Google Maps oblique imagery that is available for the Lake Léman area; imagery that amplifies the “simcity” effect of the mashup.
- The timetables used for Lausanne simulation is fetched from the SBB website and match the date of Monday, 12/03/2012. The vector data comes again from … manually digitization of the t-l.ch network. For maximum effect I tried to portray the reality as much as possible:
- For the SBB simulation I applied the same principle: Zürich HB has 4 stops: platforms 1+2, 3-18, 21-24, 51-54 and the tracks poly-lines are revised. Live demo: check the departure of IC 835 from Zürich HB.
- GeoJSON is used now as “de facto” format to represent the simulation network, check the updated project documentation on Github to learn more. Encoded polylines are still supported but I advice using them in a further step when we want to minimize the payload.
Thanks for your interest in this project !
