Hi Hannes, dear list members
Great to hear that there may be a transport working group, I am looking
forward to attend the meeting.
You may also be interested in the next GeoBeer http://geobeer.ch event
on May 6 in Olten. We will have a short talk on mapping public
transportation data. This includes the presentation of some trackers -
amongst others with SBB data - as well as tools for HAFAS to GTFS
conversion. Registration has already closed but there is a waitlist
available. And the event will be well covered on twitter.
