Infrastructure management


Several applications used within the SNCF group and outside need a mapping representation of the railway network. The OSRD base map uses geographic data from OpenStreetMap (OSM), a “Wikipedia of maps” that allows collaborative consultation and editing of geographic data. This base map is regularly updated to reflect the evolution of non-rail infrastructure.

OSRD management

“OSRD Infrastructure Management**” proposes a mapping service accessible to all and shared, based on the same model: everyone will be able to contribute and put in quality the railway data. We provide on the one hand a complete editor of the rail network infrastructure and the objects that compose it, and on the other hand, the provision of data layers for their exploitation and representation in the standards of online mapping. Finally, we are studying the possibility of **being able to automate the updating of OpenStreetMap’s railway data** with the data thus made available.
