Mobile Application for Acquiring Geodata on Public Transport Network

Chapter

Abstract

Following the detected deficiencies in managing geodata on public transport network in the Olomouc Region, potential solutions of the situation were analysed. On the basis of extensive research of global standards in public transport data standardization, a data model of entities and their attributes according to the needs of public transport management and control in the Czech Republic was established. Further, a data warehouse was created on the base of the newly created data model by means of the special software specializing in work with lines and network elements. A mobile application for a tablet to collect field data was designed to supply the warehouse. The concept of public transport geodata collection, management and updating was created in cooperation of Asseco Central Europe, Coordinator of the Integrated Transport System in the Olomouc Region and the Department of Geoinformatics of Palacky University in Olomouc in reaction to the unsuitable data situation in public transport in the Olomouc Region. Current filling of the data warehouse by means of the designed mobile application will later be followed by creating an interactive transport plan and spatial analysis based on the data about the managed area.
