Polygons around TollObejcts

Postby biro.daniel » Tue Jan 08, 2019 2:12 pm

Dear All,

We wish to surround current and future TollObjects in our system with a border, in order to better identify the area subject to the given TollObject.
Our chosen method would be to map polygons around TollObjects, thus giving them a certain area of coverage.
Therefore, I would like to inquire if it is at all possible to get this information out of the PTV TollObject database regarding polygons surrounding the aforementioned TollObjects? And if not, do you have a tool available, with which the recording can be done manually?

Thank you in advance,
Daniel

Hello Daniel,

sounds a bit like an administrative task that should be performed once per map update.

Within the xLocate 1 interface we offer the POI search where you can limit hits to specific POI types, e.g. TollLocations:
https://xserver.ptvgroup.com/fileadmin/ ... _Types.htm

But before I can give you a proper direction I'd like to understand your expectation towards the info you want to gather:

What is you understanding of a "toll object"?

Best regards,

Bernd

Dear Bernd,

Our understanding of TollObjects currently consist of parking lots, ferries, gas stations, etc. So thus, what we call TollObject is a subset of the POIs you have sent us in your answer.
What we intend to do with them is assign a certain area to each of these POIs, just as you can see in the attached picture. Our goal is to more accurately pinpoint the locations of event recognition.

In this example, the POI in question is represented by the P1 marker and the polygon, which is the actual area of the parking lot is highlighted in red.
The information we are seeking is the red polygon. Therefore, the question is whether you have this information readily available in some accessible way? And if not, is there a tool you can provide us to record them manually?

Thank you in advance,
Daniel

Hello Daniel,

unfortunately such geometries are not available through the API or data department.
We also can't provide a tool to be used for such an administration.

I still want to go back in the process:

Imagine you have a table data structure defined by
ID ; x ; y ; geometry

How would you use it in the next step of your workflow?
What kind of events do you want to recognize?

Best regards,
Bernd
