How can I import Stops and automatically create a hierarchy of Stops, Stop areas and Stop points?
- If you only have a coordinate list, you can either convert this with a GIS into georeferenced point objects, or create a NET file to read them as Nodes to PTV Visum. - If the Stops are already available as georeferenced points, you can import them with a Shapefile to PTV Visum as a Nodes. Then you can integrate these isolated Nodes into the network and at the same time convert them into hierarchies of Stops, Stop areas and Stop points: - Nodes -> (Right-click to open the context menu -> Aggregate isolated nodes - Either use the option 'Always as node with stop point' or 'Always just as stop point' because that creates a Stop point (either on the then integrated Node or on the next Link), along with a contiguous Stop area and Stop. However, if complex hierarchies are needed with multiple Stop points per Stop area and also with multiple Stop areas, these must be edited manually.
