I suggest you ...

You've used all your votes and won't be able to post a new idea, but you can still search and comment on existing ideas.

There are two ways to get more votes:

  • When an admin closes an idea you've voted on, you'll get your votes back from that idea.
  • You can remove your votes from an open idea you support.
  • To see ideas you have already voted on, select the "My feedback" filter and select "My open ideas".

Enter your idea and we'll search to see if someone has already suggested it.

If a similar idea already exists, you can support and comment on it.

If it doesn't exist, you can post your idea so others can support it.

  1. It would be magnificent if you could set settings as only buses or only walking, etc.

    Here in London I am not particularly fond of travelling by tube, I would really like to know how time it will take me travelling only by bus, or perhaps walking, or a combination of all settings.

    • add a "show me how" link that details the bus/train links used to get there in that amount of time.

      If possible, it would be nice to see how some of these time are achieved. I live in DC and some of these look pretty optimistic. If you've found better ways to get around, I want to be able to go from pretty pictures to more efficient commuting!

        This is a good idea! Technically it requires a bit more effort. Be aware that Mapnificent is not a trip planner and is partly guesstimating. But if it appears overly optimistic in some parts, an analysis is definitely important. Will do, but need to figure out right UI and implementation, may take some time.

      • Take frequency of transit service into account.

        Frequent bus routes are more useful then buses leaving once per hour. I know you assume "that you will time your journey in a way that you don’t have to wait for your first transport option" but that's not always realistic.

        Maybe with coloured shading you could distinguish what is accessible on frequent networks (leaving at least once every 15 minutes) and what is accessible with less frequent service.

            Please list all the different transit agencies that would need to be added. Please list available GTFS data for these agencies, if data is available. If data is not available, please write to the transit agency and ask them to publish GTFS data for developers to use free of charge.

              Does not work on iPad. Tried two different browsers.

                Tricky! Mapnificent needs some CPU power and iPad is probably not able to handle it. I will work with the iPad Simulator in the coming week, but can’t guarantee that it will work on an actual one (don’t own one myself). I will report progress here.
                Mapnificent currently works best in Chrome, Opera, Safari and Firefox (in roughly that order).

              • work in IE9

                It'd be great if this worked in IE9.

                    In order to add your city, the local transport provider needs to publish its public transport data in the GTFS format.

                    Please write your public transport agency and ask them to provide developers with GTFS data for free and under fair conditions. Point out the benefits they have when developers build cool applications like Mapnificent based on this data.
                    Please report progress and post any relevant links here. Thanks.

                  • Have a polygon export option - shapefile/tabfile

                    This idea is very, very hot for people trying to relocate their office. It would be great to be able to export the polygons so that they could be used in presentations and/or layered to get multiple ranges of travel time to list two ideas.

                              I had a brief discussion on Twitter about STIB’s data for Brussels. It is available for free, but unfortunately under conditions that are not acceptable to me: http://www.stib.be/data-sharing.html?l=en
                              The general conditions have some ridiculous paragraphs as I mentioned on Twitter before (https://twitter.com/#!/mapnificent/status/7208275082739712)
                              The conditions I have a problem with are:
                              - § 4.3 no modifications to the data set. Mapnificent transforms the data to be able to work the way it does, there is no other way. This paragraph may or may not apply, but I’m rather on the safe side and wait for the agency to give permission (like I did for San Diego and Los Angeles).
                              – § 4.5: Sharing usage statistics twice a year. I don’t mind sharing statistics on a voluntary basis, but I don’t want to commit myself to a report twice a year. If I forget, I violate the conditions and might…

                              The estimates of how far you can get with a bicycle are woefully conservative, at least in Boston. Could you make it so that we can enter our own biking and walking speeds?

                                In Stockholm you can easily get far in 30 minutes, almost in any direction. Or at least that's what we think. We want to be able to compare this pretty popular city with other cities with a subway and buses. Thank you.

                                  • An option to set a default location would be handy.

                                    ...even more cool would be the ability to tag locations (eg home, work, Joe the best friend) which you could quickly select from the location pup-up bubble

                                    ...maybe even pull addresses from gmail contacts to quickly see where you can meet with friends (ok, gmail contacts may be a bit too extravagant).
