Hi I came across osm2nds and would like to experiment with it. I’m not a GIS specialist as such, but I do use spatial data in health geography research and do quite a lot of network analysis with Ordnance Survey data in ArcGIS here in the UK. I’m looking for a possible alternative source of routing data though.
I’ve used OSM data a little for visualisation using ArcGIS, and played with it in the OSMAR package in R a little, but never used it for network analysis. Your application looks like a good place to start, but is there any documentation or introductory materials for this application? Also I’d like to know what I have to do to my existing Arc set up to make it work (ArcGIS 10.0 running on windows OS and a 64 bit system, with the network analyst extension) any other tips for people starting out with this would be very welcome.
