      Mapnificent Milwaukee has been started.
      However there are some difficulties:
      – the rather strict terms of use about validity of data combined with the fact that the data itself does not provide date ranges, but only individual dates (no calendar.txt file) is a bit problematic. I think I can tweak it in a way to be sort of compliant, but I don’t feel too well. If someone from the Milwaukee County Transit Agency could say something about the issue, I’d feel better about it.
      - the data has some issues with trips driving too fast (taking 0 seconds between stops), I have to investigate this which will take some more time.

      • Android version.

        There is an increasing amount of alternate OS available. It would be great to be available for at least the Android and Blackberry as well.

              Challenges here: getting the data, processing it and building the right interface for it. For the first two I can’t provide a sophisticated solution. I also don’t want Mapnificent to suffer from feature creep.
              I want to keep Mapnificent Public Transport oriented, therefore I will probably only build a feature that let’s you check distance by car from your starting point to one other specific point.

            • Use topology data!

              Walking up and down hills is slow and tiring! Also, hills tend to correlate with poorly-connected street grids and winding roads. Taking topology into account could go along with using actual street data instead of circles around bus stops, but could also approximate it by scaling down the radius in the direction of steep hills.

                      Please link to data for each of these agencies. Also I’m not sure if I want to integrate all these into a single Mapnifcent map even when they lie in the same general area. The map may get too big and too slow if it has too many transit agencies.

                    • Create a mobile phone app

                      A mobile phone app would probably be more powerful than a web app (which can only be viewed using a mobile browser). I think this service can be a lot more useful once it can be accessed by mobile phones (and tablets).

                                • add +/- buttons for the minutes in addition to slider for more accurate control

                                  Since browser handling the slider pretty slow after you drag-n-drop it, sometimes when the intention is just to drop down one minute it "thinks" some time and then goes down 5 minutes or more instead. The +/- buttons or a number field to enter minutes manually would speed up the process and take the extra load from the browser away, when using the slider section.

                                      Data for Berlin has been scraped more than a year ago and is not maintained.
                                      Berlin currently does not publish public transport data, that is why it’s out-of-date, incomplete and possibly incorrect. Please request machine-readable and freely available data from the public transport providers BVG / S-Bahn / VBB.

                                      Cheers,
                                      Stefan

                                        IndyGo does not participate in Google Transit and does not publish their transit data as GTFS, so I cannot build a Mapnificent for Indianapolis at this point. Please contact IndyGo and ask them to publish their transit data as GTFS: https://www.indygo.net/feedback.asp
