A new approach to smart transport
Using data to provide insights into transport networks isn’t a new approach, but the truth is we have barely scratched the surface in exploiting Big Data to improve transport networks and planning.
While day-to-day operational tasks – such as optimising traffic signal timing and responding to accidents – are important to the smooth flow of traffic, even greater value lies in being able to predict what the networks of the future could, and should, look like.
New developments in advanced location-based analytics are providing transport leaders with the ability to move beyond historical and real-time views of traffic networks.
By combining advanced analytics with a broad range of new Big Data sources, transport decision-makers are better positioned to understand future commuter behaviour and plan networks that match and direct movement more efficiently than ever before.
Leveraging location to break down supply chain silos
An increasing number of supply chain and logistics management organisations are turning to GIS in a bid to improve communications, operate with greater efficiency and strengthen overall situational awareness.
