Colombo, Sri Lanka: Bus Route

This guy working at IFS has done a really neat job of showing the bus routes in the Colombo area.

I wonder how much effort it would take to do one that you could query. Microsoft has a product called MapPoint which I think could be reused so that we can just feed in the data and it would generate the map and allow it to be queried.

It would be a great thing if some company could create this database. If it is possible to do it for a large country like USA, surely it must be easier for Sri Lanka. Is the RDA doing something like this?

This would be a good idea for eSri Lanka.
