Transit App for iOS 6 and Beyond by OpenPlans With the announcement of iOS version 6, Apple has dropped Google Maps and with it, previously built-in support for travel directions via public transit. With your support, OpenTripPlanner Mobile, an open source application developed by OpenPlans will put transit back on the iPhone. Initially, we will offer coverage for almost all transit systems in North America (see coverage details below). The app will also add new features that Google Maps didn’t have, allowing users to combine walking, bikes, bike-share and transit together, finding the fastest and most efficient trips regardless of mode of transportation. The more funds we raise the more features and data coverage we'll be able to add. Your donation is tax-deductible and supports our work building software that makes cities better. The way we get around is changing. We’ve spent the last three years creating a trip planning engine, OpenTripPlanner, in partnership with transit agencies and software developers around the globe.

It describes Carrot2 application suite and the API developers can use to integrate Carrot2 clustering algorithms into their code. Carrot2 Online Demo: Carrot2 website: What is Carrot2 and what it is not Carrot2 is a library and a set of supporting applications you can use to build a search results clustering engine. Carrot2 contains two document clustering algorighms designed specifically for search results clustering: Suffix Tree Clustering and Lingo. Carrot2 is not a search engine itself, it does not have a crawler and indexer. In most cases your workflow with Carrot2 applications would be the following: Chapter 2 answers the questions most frequently asked on Carrot2 mailing lists, it can also serve as a question-based index to the rest of this manual.

autoinst: Wiki: UserGuide Welcome to the Autoinst User Guide. Autoinst is a tool for version controlled, templated, host configuration. This guide describes how to use Autoinst to manage configurations and templates, explains Autoinst concepts, how to use the command line interfaces and the API methods. Autoinst is designed to help its users manage host configurations, with the following features: Version controlled repository of configuration information Ability to reconstruct host configurations at any point in time Ability to write a single template to manage multiple similar configuration files Why another configuration system? Autoinst is limited in scope by design. Host configurations might be centrally managed, but do not have a revision system. Autoinst does not attempt to solve the following problems: Binary packaging. Instead, Autoinst is meant to complement these existing solutions, by providing a version-controlled configuration framework. Autoinst Resources Hosts <? Groups <? Group Naming Conventions <type>.

There is sufficient confusion around each of these questions that further discussion would be useful.'s goals -- audience, users, goals, value -- are as broad as the challenge is intended to address: data access for all public federal data. We take that for granted.
