National Traffic Information System for Taiwan

SHARE

Taiwan: SuperGeo established a WebGIS combining various types of traffic information from dissimilar government sectors across the nation in Taiwan. With this WebGIS, the public can query real-time traffic situation of national freeway, province highway and general roads in each city/county. Users can select start point and end point across city/county and choose to avoid traffic events to obtain the best route.

Institute of Transportation, MOTC, Taiwan, planned to establish a WebGIS to assist 23 city/county governments and related units in reporting up-to-date traffic conditions, accident events, construction information, etc. The Institute also wanted to efficiently integrate traffic situation provided by National Freeway Bureau and Directorate General of Highways to complete the traffic information.

National Traffic Information System integrates many kinds of real-time traffic information of each city/county and national freeway, such as speed information, CMS information, CCTV information, road events, etc. The system is based on Microsoft SQL Server 2000 and PostgreSQL as the database platforms for saving the various kinds of traffic data from numerous related units. In terms of the map server, National Traffic Information Center System uses SuperWebGIS, the Internet map server software developed by SuperGeo Technologies, to publish maps and services and provide various GIS manipulations. Therefore, users can use a browser to view and query traffic information easily.

Meanwhile, the company also announced that Super Wang, CEO and President of SuperGeo Technologies, is going to attend the Advanced GIScience Research Workshop held by the Research Center for Humanities and Social Sciences at Academia Sinica, the highest academic institution of Taiwan, during July 14 to 16.

The Advanced GIScience Research Workshop aims to discuss and explore the challenges and advantages in the GI Science Research in Taiwan. Wang is invited for the panel discussion session, GIS technology and software development in Taiwan.
