Software

Here is some of the software I have written.

BusMap

A few years back, I was a volunteer at FreshwindsIT and was asked to make a custom google map showing the local transport links. Building on this, I created a web page that utilises open datasets to give you the live bus times of your nearest bus stops.

It asks your browser for your location data so it can centre the map on your position. It also works on any modern smartphone! Handy when you're out and about.

It uses an OpenLayers slippy map, pulling maps and bus stop locations from openstreetmap.org, and finally launching a nexbuses.mobi page with the live bus timetable of the selected bus stop.

Planned future updates include using my own backend, and integration with the UK Transport API.
