Re: [sumo-user] How to add bus stations (or POIs) using its latitude and longitude

OSM does carry some contextual information that allows directional placement (previous and successive stops) which is not used in sumo version 0.30.0 but which is already used in the latest development version.
If the information is missing, all you can do is go over the coordinates manually and correct the placement by checking against satellite imagery or some other ground truth.

Thanks. Some bus stops are missing in OSM but I do know their lat/long. When I manually add them in SUMO (additonal.xml) by converting the lat/long to x/y coordinates, I found that many of them are not on a specific edge (I guess either the OSM map is not up to date or the lat/long of the bus stops are not accurate enough). Any idea how to handle such scenarios?

if you use OSM as data source, you can import the bus stations directly:
It is recommended to use the latest development version as it contains several improvements to stop position export.

Hello all,

I have a question regarding adding POIs using its latitude and longitude in SUMO. I have a number of bus stations with their latitude/longitude and I can find the X, Y coordinates in SUMO however I have a hard time locating these POIs to specific lanes/edges in SUMO. Any idea how to link these POIs to the appropriate edges/lanes (I'm using OSM for the net.xml).

Any help is greatly appreciated.
