Hello,

I'm Martin Griesemer from INIT in Germany.

I have some questions about Infrastructure Visualization (see Wiki IS:infrastructureVisualizations).
Does the detailed description exist ? Is it still up to date ?

What can be referenced under trackElementVis? All subelements of trackElements listed on that wiki page (IS:trackElements) ?

What I could not found is how to map positions of different sections of track. It would be nice to be able to do it as detailed as with the geomapping (be able to put x,y positions for several kilometer point of the track).

Thanks in advance,

Dear Martin,

Welcome to the railML community and thank you for your input.

What do you mean with "detailed description"? The Wiki is the most
detailed documentation of railML format that we have and everyone of the
railML community is invited to contribute to this wiki. In particular,
we have a high interest in obtaining best practices and examples. Do you
have anything that may help us here?

Yes, <trackElementVis>@ref shall be used to reference any sub-sub
element of <trackElements>.

The <geoMapping> element is a child element of <trackElements>. As such,
you may reference it via <trackElementVis>@ref. The <geoMapping> element
has no further meaning except providing a location for an arbitrary
point on the track. Consequently, you can reference from
<trackElementVis>@ref any track point. Is that what you need or didn't I
catch the point of your question?

Best regards
Christian

Dear all,
(dear "visualization colleagues" in particular)

with railML 2.4 we re-introduced the <infrastructureVisualizations>
schema. Unfortunately, documentation of this part of the railML model is
quite weak, both, in the schema and in the wiki.

In order to help Martin and other potential future users of the
infrastructure visualizations part, I would be very happy if you
contributed to a more detailed description and best practice examples of
using the <infrastructureVisualizations>. Please feel free to start
writing in [1] (and linked pages).

Thank you very much and best regards
Christian
