Great news.


I have copied to the od-discuss list: can you tell us more about the hints of discrepancies with the Open Definition please?  It’s not unusual for a first release to be non-compliant, and we may be able to give constructive suggestions about how the terms and conditions could be adjusted to be compliant while still protecting any legitimate concerns of SBB (“There’s more than one way to do it” J ).

To whom it may concern


This week, the Swiss Federal Railways (SBB) released a large volume of schedule data at http://www.fahrplanfelder.ch/fahrplandaten. The feedback was mixed, from a happy "Yeah! Finally! Congratulations!" to lukewarm hints at discrepancies with opendefinition.org - but in any case this move creates new potentials, new questions, and a new need to coordinate. How could the community work together to create open tools to work with this data, to transform it into other formats, to make it used and useful? Who's in, with what goals?


Let's find out, and let's make a plan - so let's meet. If interested, please fill in https://doodle.com/9ikwneuq4b7v5is9 - most practical place is Zurich, but please let me know if you'd like to participate from abroad, as this probably will turn out to be an international Hafas challenge. The meeting will also serve as the kickoff of Opendata.ch's Transport Working Group, if so decided by the participants.


Sending kind regards,

Hannes Gassert
