The Public Transport Accessibility Ontology

The Public Transport Accessibility Ontology is an extension of the General Transit Feed Specification Ontology which is a translation of the General Transit Feed Specification (GTFS) model. Its purpose is to represent accessibility elements in public transportation. It was used in the oSoc18-Spain pilot app on searching and annotating accessibility descriptions of public transportation in Madrid, specifically the metro system and buses.

A Semantic Framework for Public Services and Transport Data Interoperability

Interoperability is understood as the possibility to combine data and services from different sources in a consistent way without involving specific efforts of humans or machines. On this document we present a set of vocabularies aimed at lowering data adoption costs and increasing interoperability by establishing common semantics for the public transport and the public services sector.

Paper submitted to the semantic web journal

Using Linked Data based approaches, companies and institutions are seeking ways to automate the adoption of Open Datasets. In the transport domain, data about planned events, live updates and historical data have to coexist to provide reliable data to route planning assistants. In this paper, we describe Publishing and archiving planned and live public transport events with the Linked Connections framework

Access Flanders: output of open Summer of code 2018

AccessFlanders is a web application that uses the data gathered by the Smart Flanders team. This data is displayed on an interactive map. The user can search for public buildings and the web app will show the user extra information about the ​ accessibility of that building: is there an elevator, what is the width of the door... All of this information makes it easier for people with disabilities or care providers to plan their trips beforehand. The first filters will be implemented during oSoc18, more filters will be added in the future.
