We have checked about 75% of the stops in Hull. I have established a
contact in the city council's transport team who has received the data
we have checked with all of our comments about what we found so far. I
hope he will use the data to feed back to NaPTAN so eventually the
quality will improve all round.
I created a simple overlay for the city http://bus.raggedred.net to help
to show the progress but also to highlight stops that we have found that
need correction to the NaPTAN data. I like the idea and the look of
NOVAM, esp. because it is national and updates regularly, but it doesn't
yet show quite what I need to help the council team.
