I would like to use QGIS to create my map. One data feed is the gtfs regarding to bus routes. I can view it on Google Earth (although laggy), but when I tried to import the .kml into QGIS, it just ran out of RAM (for 30 min) and crashed my map. If I import 10 in the 18xx layers, the route is duplicated 10 times (Google Earth could show all the routes, although laggy).
I am trying a new method, so...
What I did was download the .txt on TfNSW website (Google tfnsw data and login), then use a .py script called Transitfeed by bdferris to convert the .txt into .kml. Finally import the .kml as vector layers, but I did viewed in Google Earth prior that so I though it will be okay.
I am intended to convert the shape.txt into route shapes.
I was thinking of the possibilities and solutions, for example:
- Faulty .kml
- Faulty .txt in the gtfs
- Faulty conversion from .txt to .kml
I was thinking if either first two possibilities are valid, then what is the suitable validation (of my .kml) solution? Otherwise I would like a cost-less (i.e. monetary) solution for viewing gtfs .txt file into QGIS.
