The benefit of Open Data

by Volker Weber

HERE Transit in the UK:

Scheduled routing: Aberdeen, Aylesbury, Barnsley, Basildon, Basingstoke, Bath, Bedford, Birmingham, Blackburn, Blackpool, Bolton, Bournemouth, Bradford, Brighton, Bristol, Bromley, Cambridge, Cardiff, Carlisle, Chelmsford, Cheltenham, Chester, Chesterfield, Colchester, Coventry, Crawley, Croydon, Darlington, Derby, Doncaster, Dundee, Durham, Edinburgh, Enfield, Exeter, Gateshead, Glasgow, Gloucester, Grimsby, Halifax, Harrow, High Wycombe, Huddersfield, Hull, Huntingdon, Ilford, Ipswich, King's Lynn, Leeds, Leicester, Lincoln, Liverpool, London, Loughborough, Luton, Maidstone, Manchester, Mansfield, Middlesbrough, Milton Keynes, Newcastle upon Tyne, Newport, Northampton, Norwich, Nottingham, Oldham, Oxford, Peterborough, Plymouth, Poole, Portsmouth, Preston, Reading, Rochdale, Romford, Rotherham, Salisbury, Sheffield, Shrewsbury, Slough, Solihull, Southampton, Southend-on-Sea, St Helens, Stafford, Stockport, Stoke-on-Trent, Sunderland, Swansea, Swindon, Telford, Wakefield, Walsall, Warrington, Watford, Wigan, Wirral, Wolverhampton, Worcester, Worthing, Wrexham, York

HERE Transit in Germany:

Scheduled routing: Aachen, Berlin and Potsdam

Berlin and Potsdam get scheduled routing with real-time data. That's what you really want. Everywhere.

And then there is partial routing, where HERE Transit does not know the schedule:

Partial routing: Bergisch Gladbach, Bonn, Bremen, Dresden, Duisburg, Düsseldorf, Erfurt, Essen, Frankfurt am Main, Fürth, Gelsenkirchen, Hamburg, Heidelberg, Köln, Mannheim, Mülheim an der Ruhr, München, Neuss, Nürnberg, Offenbach am Main, Stuttgart, Würzburg

That's only usable with lines that run every 5 minutes. For Darmstadt, zilch. Who is at fault? Certainly not HERE.
