The data is available under the Creative Commons licence. You must tell where the data is from, it is not allowed to use it for commercial purposes, as soon as you use it we want to be informed about it (use the sumo-user mailing list).

Setting up such a large scenario is a lot of work and we can not do it by ourselves only. That's why we currently only offer a reduced data set, which contains routes between 6:00 and 8:00 am. If you are really interested in the complete data set, ask how to obtain it at the sumo-user mailing list.


The TAPASCologne scenario package includes:

  • The road network (
  • The routes file (routes6-8.rou.xml) for time between 6:00 and 8:00 (am)
  • The SUMO-configuration file (tapascologne.sumo.cfg)


In the current version, we even have not tested the data, completely. The following assumptions are made on the quality:

  • <q0/> Network Topology and Edge Parameter (from OSM)
    • <q3/> Completeness
      • Seems to be quite complete (including even minor roads) when compared to other (commercial or administral) road networks; still, there is no information about "black spots";
      • todo: build density plot comparing commercial and this network (legal?)
    • <q-3/> Lane Number Information
      • The information about lane numbers is stored via types, mainly. For several roads, an explicite lane number is given
      • todo: evaluate how much information is given explicitely
      • todo: compare to images, write down lane number per street
    • <q-2/> Maximum Speed Information
      • Again, mostly available via types, as for lane numbers; is assumed to be mismatching on some places
      • Where can one get better information frmo?
  • <q-1/> Traffic Management Artifacts
    • <q-2/> Traffic Light Positions
      • Given for some junctions (nodes); Still, there seem to be no information whether a node not marked as controlled is really uncontrolled
      • todo: Try to find further controlled junctions or improve guessing
    • <q-3/> Traffic Light Programs
      • Ungiven
      • todo: Ask about the default cycle time (if there is one) in Cologne; apply at least this one to the generated tls logics
    • <q-1/> Other Traffic Management Artifacts
      • completely ungiven
    • <q-1/> Closures, Roads At Work
      • completely ungiven
  • <q-2/> Public Transport
    • completely ungiven
  • <q-2/> Demand Data
    • <q5/> Activity-Based single Person Trips
      • <q5/> No Time Aggregation
      • <q5/> No Start/End Position Aggregation
    • <q-2/> unverified
    • <q-2/> starts partially at highways
    • <q-2/> ad-hoc, errorneous mapping to OSM
