eWorld: 0.9_alpha released

eWorld is a framework to import mapping data from providers, such as OpenStreetMap.org (OSM), visualize it, edit and enrich it with events or annotational attributes and pass it to traffic simulators, such as SUMO or VanetMobiSim.

Hello eWorld-users,

for the past few months we worked hard to present another major release to you. The main feature is the port from Qt to Swing. This should provide a great memory advantage over the previous version, which used to be one of our major problems. Be aware that this is an alpha release and that there are still known issues and plugins that are not fully functional. We will be working to stabilize this release in another development iteration, and your feedback is more than welcome.... read more

eWorld 0.7 released

Hello eWorld-Users,

the eWorld developer team is proud to announce a new and updated release of eworld - version 0.7. Besides a bunch of bugfixes, many new features were included in the new release that you shouldn't miss:
- The performance of the map visualization interface was boosted by introducing several levels of detail. Thus, visualizing larger maps is not an issue anymore.
- eWorld can now be used as an editor for routes and trips that can be simulated e.g. with SUMO. Defining trips is made as easy as possible, simply use the builtin map visualization to define the trip or the route and export it into your simulation files.
- Additionally, a visualization and simulation control interface for SUMO has been introduced. This allows you to start SUMO directly from within eWorld and show the movement of the vehicles on the eWorld map. Furthermore you can also control the simulation progress speed or execute it step by step.
- Last but not least the user manual and developer documentation were updated and will help you to exploit eWorlds full potential.... read more

Having tested this feature for quite some time internally we are now looking forward to getting feedback from the masses for this completely new feature.... read more
