PERRON at FOSS4G 2016 in Bonn

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.

The talk has been recorded and is available here.
