NOVAM is a tool to display OpenStreetMap's bus stop data for the UK.

Contents

Product

NOVAM was created to aid in the verification of data imported from NaPTAN. It colour-codes the bus stops according to their status of verified, unverified and more depending on how the NaPTAN data differs from the physical stop, if there is one at all. It allows multiple colour schemes to be defined to help ensure that bus stops are visible.

NOVAM is a Javascript based Openlayers product with some server side Pylon script.

The data is from xapi.openstreetmap.org

Impact

NOVAM has made checking the data imported from NaPTAN much easier, and thus made the OpenStreetMap data derived from NaPTAN much more reliable.
