Re: [pgrouting-users] Help about Routing Topology

Stephen Woodbridge-4
Hello Paul,

I've added this inquiry to the pgrouting-users mailing list because
others might have more information on it.

I'm not sure what the state of the pgr_createTopology() function is as I
have not used it recently. I actually created my own function
createTopology3D() to handle this information when I was working with
datasets that included a zlevel attribute. The simple way I did this was
to create a pointz with (lon, lat, zlevel) which created enough
separation for multiple points at the same lon, lat that nodes at
different zlevel would be connected correctly.

I'm not sure of this applies to OSM. Does OSM have zlevel information?

I suspect that pgr_createTopology() does not support this because there
is no standards in the industry for how to represent zlevel information,
but you should be able to copy pgr_createTopology and create a
pgr_createTopology3D that supports your needs for your dataset.
