The actual method by a simple track import has the tendency to place “waypoints” close to where the track changes direction. Such means that you often end up near the critical road junctions. Result is +/- similar as with other such applications. lnspection and repair is time-consuming, new design faster and more qualitative
Therefore this alternative using “distance tickmarks”. The chance that a tickmark shaping point will fall at a critical place is less, even when using relatively high tickmark shaping waypoint density which ensures a more faithful reproduction of the original without many manual corrections.
FUTURE GOAL !
ACTIONS MUST OCCUR AUTOMATICALLY AFTER IMPORT OF A SIMPLE TRACK.
Demo function test.
Items in “Italic” are currently not available or must be created by external tools
- USE DECENT quality TRACKS. (Motorbiking traject)
- DISPLAY: Use the (red) track as visual helper template guide.
- CREATE: New (blue) navigation route by the imported track.
TO DO by user.
- SELECT and import a simple track
- SET: Select the best fit Router Profile.
- SET: Snap to street AND Cleaning range.
- HQ tracks:10m (little or no difference from the OSM road pattern)
- LQ tracks: 20m (differ greatly from the OSM road pattern.
- SET: Select a “Shaping tickmark” distance. (Kurviger waypoint limit = Max 200)
- Long distance: 2.5 km
- Medium distance: 1 km or 0.5 km
- Short distance: 0.25 km
TO DO by the AUTOMATIC.
a. IMPORT: After track import, the app adds the temporary distance “Shaping tickmark” waypoints for the formation of the new navigation route.
b. SELECTION: Only “Shaping tickmarks” within the snap range of a street are to be promoted to be route references. Such prevents that “lost” unprecise located “Shaping tickmarks” are disturbing the primary route built.
- After calculation delete “Shaping tickmarks” that have a nearby U-turn point in range.
- Such triggers a recalculation with a more optimal result.
d. FINE TUNE CONTROL by USER: Manually correct minor traject deviations by using the (red) visual reference track template.
e. FINAL: Save and export without the many “Shaping tickmarks” as a Kurviger navigation file.
“Track snap to road and attach navigation instructions”
The Kurviger app has the potential to optimize this.
