Courtesy: Transportation governmentUS: Google has agreed to integrate Federal Railroad Administration’s (FRA) GIS data, which pinpoints the location of the nation's approximately 250,000 public and private railroad crossings, into its mapping services. Adding railroad crossing data to smartphone mapping applications will supply drivers and passengers with additional cues that they are approaching a crossing. The application will help drivers and passengers who are driving an unfamiliar route, traveling at night, or who lose situational awareness at any given moment.
