FOSS4G is the annual global event of the Open Source Geospatial Foundation (OSGeo).
This year at FOSS4G 2016 Conference in Bonn, Germany, Anita Graser (AIT) presented her work on a novel landmark-based pedestrian navigation model using open source tools and open data from Open-StreetMap. The approach ensures that the developed landmark navigation model is widely applicable, rather than restricted to a certain area with exceptional data sources. Contributions cover algorithms for extraction, weighing, and selection of landmarks based on their suitability, as well as the generation of landmark-based navigation instructions for a given pedestrian route.
