I'm new to the project and really love the idea of it, I've just got my
driving license and was looking for a FOSS navigation system, which of
course doesn't exist and probably won't for a long while.
But i really like the idea of this project and will be doing some GPS
work when i get my garmin USB cable delivered (why don't laptops have
serial ports anymore?).
I am aware that you have finished logging all the motorways in the
mainland UK, i just wondered if you knew about this site: www.cbrd.co.uk;
It holds a motorway database that lists all the motorways plus where
they start, finish, what towns they pass, length, what other motorways
terminate on it, what motorways spur from it and what motorways it meets.
Also with an amazing list/diagram of each and every exit/junction on the
They also have a nice list of the A roads and B roads (not in as much
detail at the motorways i don't think).
As any work been done on navigation using the data which has been collected?
Since the data now contains all the motorways, surely it should be
possible to say 'i want to go from Leeds to Liverpool' (for example) and
it ('it'; a program that would be made) could say what motorways needed
to used? and then expand from there when more data about A/B roads etc.
keep up the good work,
