本来答应琮第七集写 Stuttgart 21. 但是今天听到一件大事,不写不快。至于 Stuttgart 21,我还想再收集一些数据与事实。请琮给我一点时间。 据德国时代周刊报道,德铁松手把她的列车时刻数据交给 Google. 我以前的东主,正是为欧洲的几乎所有铁路公司提供时刻数据搜索服务的,旗舰产品名为 Hafas。德铁是我前东主的最大客户,合作已有 25 年以上历史。Hafas data format 几乎已是欧洲铁路公司的 de facto 时刻数据标准。我刚入职时,曾经潜心研究过这个数据格式,可以说对它比较熟悉。估计,Google 从德铁手上拿到的数据,就是用 Hafas data format 写的。前东家待我不薄,技术细节我不会说。
