About

This project animates vehicles (markers) on a map using the public transport timetables to interpolate their positions along the routes (polylines).

NEW: Plug and play your GTFS files ! Check the GTFS-viz for more information.

Swiss railways(SBB) SBB network - http://simcity.vasile.ch/sbb/

Live applications using this project

Swiss railways(SBB)Romanian railways(CFR)Lausanne (TL)Brașov (RAT)Grenoble (TAG)Genève (TPG)

Install

You need is a webserver(i.e. Apache) and a (modern) browser.

Steps:

  • clone / download the project in a location that can be accessible via your webserver
  • access the project in the browser (i.e. http://localhost/transit-map/ ).

You should already see some action on the map !

Customize

Parameters in config.js

File static/js/config.js

Key Required Sample Value Description
center.x YES 8.540 Longitude of the map center. Values in decimal degrees.
center.x YES 47.378 Latitude of the map center. Values in decimal degrees.
map_type_id YES roadmap Initial map type. Values: roadmap, satellite, terrain, stamen
zoom.start YES 13 Initial map zoom level. Values from 1 to 21.
zoom.min 7 Minimum map zoo level.
zoom.max 7 Maximum map zoo level.
zoom.to_stops YES 17 Zoom to this value when a stop(station) is clicked / selected
zoom.roadmap.stops_min 15 Minimum zoom level for which the stops(stations) layer is visible when the roadmap view is rendered
zoom.roadmap.stops_max 20 Maximum zoom level ...
zoom.roadmap.shapes_min 7 Minimum zoom level for which the shapes(tracks) ...
zoom.roadmap.shapes_min 20 Maximum zoom level ...
zoom.satellite.stops_min 15 Minimum zoom level for which the stops(stations) layer is visible when the satellite view is rendered
zoom.satellite.stops_max 20 Maximum zoom level ...
zoom.satellite.shapes_min 7 Minimum zoom level for which the shapes(tracks) ...
zoom.satellite.shapes_min 18 Maximum zoom level ...
zoom.vehicle_follow YES 17 Zoom to this value when a vehicle is "followed"
zoom.vehicle_mouseover_min YES 7 Prohibit vehicle popups when hovering under this zoom value
ft_layer_ids.mask string Fusion Table ID of the area mask. Example: SBB network mask
ft_layer_ids.gtfs_shapes string Fusion Table ID of the GTFS shapes. Example: SF Muni shapes
ft_layer_ids.gtfs_stops string Fusion Table ID of the GTFS stops. Example: SF Muni stops
ft_layer_ids.topology_edges string Fusion Table ID of the custom network edges. Example: SBB edges . Use this for non-GTFS projects
ft_layer_ids.topology_stations string Fusion Table ID of the custom network stations. Example: SBB edges . Use this for non-GTFS projects
api_paths.trips YES api/getTrips/[hhmm] Vehicles (or GTFS trips) API with all vehicles that run at given hhmm - hour minutes.
api_paths.departures api/getDepartures/[stop_id]/[hhmm] Departures API of the vehicles that stop in [stop_id] station at given [hhmm] time.
geojson.gtfs_shapes YES api/geojson/gtfs_shapes.json GeoJSON FeatureCollection with the GTFS shapes. **This param is not required if geojson.topology_* are used.
geojson.gtfs_stops YES api/geojson/gtfs_shapes.json GeoJSON FeatureCollection with the GTFS stops. This param is not required if geojson.topology_* are used.
geojson.topology_edges static/geojson/edges-sbb.json GeoJSON FeatureCollection with the network edges. This param is required if the project is NOT GTFS based.
geojson.topology_stations static/geojson/edges-sbb.json GeoJSON FeatureCollection with the network stations. This param is required if the project is NOT GTFS based.
routes Hash JS Hash containing the route defintions.**

Notes:

  • no one of the FT Layers are needed, they are just used for displaying the network stations and lines on the map.
  • ft_layer_ids.gtfs_* and ft_layer_ids.topology_* are mutually exclusive, the first one should be used if the project is GTFS-based . Same for geojson.gtfs_* vs geojson.topology_* keys
  • check the GTFS-viz script if you plan to animate a GTFS dataset

Override parameters

All the config parameters above can be overriden using query string parameters, for instance add ?center.x=8.2&center.y=46.9 to override the map center.

Other parameters

In addition to these, other optional parameters can be used as querystring parameters or in the config.js

Key Sample Value Description
hms 10:20:30 Override time of day, using hh:mm:vv format
time_multiply 10 Accelerate the simulation :) Possible values: 1, 5, 10, 100
view_mode iframe Will remove the info panel; suitable for IFRAME integrations
vehicle_name ICN10017 The application will try to locate the vehicle by name and follow it
vehicle_id string Same as above for vehicle_id
