Public Transport POIs

Stephan shared this question 2 months ago

I have tested the LoMap for Germany South of the Locus store. Mainly I am interested in the Public Transport POIs. If I am opening such an POI in Osmand, than I am getting this information:

  • all train, tram, local train, subway or bus routes
  • and all their first and last station.

For better understanding I attach screenshots from Osmand.

In Locus I do not find this information. I also attach a screenhot.

What I am doing wrong?

This kind is in Germany very important, because on the OSM based maps there are shown railwaystations, which

  • are offering no public transport
  • are offering only busses
  • are offering trains

So I can decide, which railwaystation I should choose. The additional information of the first and last stop of a public transport route helpes also choosing a good public transport stop.

Dear Stephan,

thank you for question. Unfortunately it's not possible to obtain such info in Locus at this moment. However we're planning to improve POI database this year. We'll take your question (idea) in to consideration during implementation of the new POI database.

Thanks

Hi,

this is exactly my biggest problem with locus. I'm often in a city doing some Geocaching and then I want to get to the closest public hub. But no way to find it.

An integration of such a world wide POI database would be fantastic !

Thanks Wolfgang

Dear Wolfgang,

if you need only find the Bus/tram stop you can use POIs that are available in LoMaps. You can display nearest stops via Menu > More > POis beta > Transportation Please see https://docs.locusmap.eu/doku.php?id=manual:user_guide:points:locus_maps_pois

You need to download any LoMap from Locus store to be able use mentioned POIs https://docs.locusmap.eu/doku.php?id=manual:user_guide:maps_locusmaps

Thanks, Petr

Dear Petr,

many thanks for this info. I never tested the POIs because there is always written 'beta' behind that feature and so I just ignored it. Looks like it's what I am looking for. I did not yet had the chance for a real testing.

The handling seems to be a bit uncomfortable but I'll wait for further comments till locus v4 is released.

Thanks Wolfgang
