Nokia Bringing Real-Time Traffic Data to Esri Mapping Platform

Nokia Bringing Real-Time Traffic Data to Esri Mapping PlatformNokia on Monday announced plans to extend Here real-time traffic data to a leading mapping platform.

Here, a Nokia business, will bring its real-time traffic information to Esri, a market leader in Geographic Information System (GIS) mapping software used by enterprise and government fleet management companies around the world.

According to Nokia, with Here Traffic, Esri will enhance its web and cloud location platform with more precise location data for intelligent routing.

Fleet operators will be able to better manage problems as they occur in real time, re-routing fleets when traffic unexpectedly hits, and providing alerts when pickup or delivery delays occur.

Why is this expanded partnership so important today? According to the tech giant’s announcement today, with congestion in the top 100 highway bottlenecks getting worse, real time traffic information helps fleets avoid traffic hotspots so that they get can get to their destinations faster and more safely.

“For 10 years, Esri and Hhere have had the shared goal of enhancing safety and increasing the efficiency of fleet operations by offering the most accurate transportation information on more roads than any other provider across the world,” says Chris Cappelli, Director of Sales at Esri. “Launching real-time traffic from HERE on Esri’s platform for our ArcGIS Online and ArcGIS for Transportation Analytics software products will offer a deeper level of logistic and analytic capabilities for enterprise and government fleet companies.”
