The transport graph

Our talks this month have a transport theme and feature graphs of the Manchester tram system and UK road network

Roads, Nodes and Automobiles
or how sat-nav could use a Neo4j graph
Jacqui Read, Web Application Developer - http://www.jacqui.tk

Jacqui will share how what seemed like a simple graph gist, to map UK road networks, quickly changed into a very complex set of nodes, connections and properties to enable navigation from A to B. There will also be a brief introduction to graph gists and how useful they can be.

Transport Network Route Finding Using A Graph 
from zero to MVP in 5 week tech lab
Ian Cartwright, Director at ThoughtWorks
Ben Earlam, Senior Consultant at ThoughtWorks

Ian and Ben will share their experiences of building a route finding application for Manchester's Metrolink system (
www.tramchester.co.uk) using open data (GTFS) and Neo4j. They will touch on the data they had to work with, the modelling process (successes and failures), and the importance of time in the model.
