OpenRouter/pgRouting 2012 SOC Ideas

Enter ideas for development projects here. Note these are just suggestions - students are welcome to propose projects based on their own interests that relate to OpenRouter/pgRouting. Our current efforts are based on the following projects:

  • pgRouting. This routing library provides routing functionality to PostGIS/PostgreSQL.
  • OpenGraphRouter. This project is a C++ library and tools to build a commercial grade routing engine.

You can find the source code, tutorials, the project mailing list and various other information at the links above.

To give you an idea about possible SoC projects, here are some suggestions:
