Computer Science Student from OST campus Rapperswil wins DINAcon Award

Labian Gashi has won the DINAcon 2020 Award in the category "Best Newcome" with the JOSM plugin "NeTEx Converter" developed by him. Stefan Keller from the HSR Rapperswil/ Ostschweizer University of Applied Sciences as well as specialists from SBB supervised the project. The NeTEx Converter converts OpenStreetMap data into the Network Timetable Exchange format, (a CEN standard), which is "designed for the efficient exchange of complex transport data". The plugin also checks rudimentary indoor routing within stations.
