I have a .shp with all the street of an area. I also have all the gtfs of the public transportation of the area so I want to clean the gtfs data of the itinerary. The shape of all the itinerary are a bounch of point with the coordinates and some of this is in some building so i want to take all the shape's points and put on the street. I can use Grass or Gdal. Suggestions?
If you can relax your dependence on GRASS/GDAL, there is a Python script that does this with OpenStreetMap data.
Here's the procedure I use in GRASS to snap points to lines. It uses the
v.distance module to get the target coords for snapping to the lines. Suppose we have a points vector "stations" and a line vector "streams", and the new snapped points will be "new_stations" :
# Add columns to the original points to hold the snapp coords v.db.addcolumn --q map=stations columns="snap_x double, snap_y double" v.distance --q --o from=stations to=streams output=connectors upload=to_x,to_y column=snap_x,snap_y # Create a new stations vector with the snap_x and snap_y columns # Use v.out.ascii with -r option to export only drainage point in current region (domain) # snap_x and snap_y columns become the X-Y coordinates for frxst_pts point vector v.out.ascii --q -r -c stations columns="id,station_name,station_num,longitude,latitude,snap_x,snap_y" separator=comma | v.in.ascii --q --o input=- output=new_stations x=8 y=9 cat=3 columns="east double,north double,id integer,station_name text,station_num integer,longitude double,latitude double,snap_x double,snap_y double" separator=comma skip=1
