comment How to route on a Shapefile?
Can you explain a bit more? You have a shape file that you'd like perform routing analysis on using pgrouting? What are you trying to achieve? and what have you done so far to get there?

comment What books, journals, and electronic resources are most valuable for expanding knowledge of GIS?
@radek do you mind if I edit the question, or you can do it if you so desire, to consolidate the answers into one post / initial question submission?

comment Dealing with bridges and tunnels when modeling raster least cost paths?
@whuber I guess I was referring to vehicle tunnels that go under a river, through a mountain or under a busy business / downtown core. Peds are not usually allowed in those high speed long facilities

comment Dealing with bridges and tunnels when modeling raster least cost paths?
I agree and think it is a pure vector problem. The rasters should only be used to find routes that are not represented via vectors. Add to that most tunnels don't allow pedestrians.
