We're about to finish the bus stops phase of this import [1]. The next
phase will be to upload the routes. I modified the wiki concerning this
topic and would appreciate a review of the two examples that I have set [2]
and [3]. Most of the times, the number of route variants for each direction
on each route master is high because the vehicle takes different sequences
of stops according to the timetable (like in [3]). To differentiate the
relative importance of the variants and know when it take each of them, I
have included a operating_hours tag with the timetable of the departures.
Please view also [4].

Any comment is welcome.

Best regards, Javier.

> Hello
> This is a request for discussion of the project to import a dataset of
> about three thousands bus stops in Tenerife Island, Spain. Please review
> this wiki page:
> http://wiki.openstreetmap.org/wiki/Tenerife_Bus_Transport_Import
> In short:
> * The owner of the data has granted permission to use their data under the
> ODbL terms.
> * Four local mappers are involved in the project.
> * Data are transformed from GTFS format to OSM XML with GO_Sync.
> * Conflation is a big concern due to a medium density of actual mapped bus
> stops, but lacking ref and name tags in most cases. The approach adopted to
> resolve the conflicts is human revision with GO_Sync tool.
> * Double checking it is planned for QA.
> * The resulting OSM file will have around 1,3 MB and will be uploaded with
> Josm.
> * The dedicated user account is titsa-import.
> * This is a first phase (bus stops). The routes import is under
> development.
> Regards, Javier Sanchez
