VIA, a Netherlands-based ICT (Information Communications Technology) company focused on solutions that provide insight into road safety, stimulate efficient work processes, and bring together people and knowledge. VIA has used TatukGIS SDK products for its GIS development since 2004.
ViaStat Speed Profile data, aggregated by TomTom, helps to identify the location and timing of unsafe conditions. This enables road/traffic authorities to act preventively, to combat excessive speeding before accidents happen. ViaStat Reports, furthermore, enables citizens/road users to contribute reports of unsafe situations in a given geographical area, making road users an active participate in their own safety. Reports are collected via the Road Safety Report System (RSRS), an initiative of the Dutch Road Safety Association (Veilig Verkeer Nederland) in cooperation with VIA. In this way, citizens, police, and partner organizations work together to create effective solutions.
Using ViaStat InMaps, road maintenance, construction work, and other traffic-disturbing events can be visualized and regionally tuned. In the Netherlands, this data is automatically exchanged nationally through the National Data Warehouse for Traffic Information (NDW). The data can be communicated to citizens through the ViaStat InMaps App or an interactive map on a website.
VIA mobile Apps call services that use TatukGIS functionality to convert geo-data together with other data into a binary-format, which is downloaded and stored locally on the computing device. As long as the data on the server remains unchanged, the App uses the data stored on the mobile device. In this way, VIA solutions can handle a large number of users.Another great TatukGIS DK (Enterprise edition) feature is support for spatial querying on advanced spatial databases such as Microsoft SQL Server, Oracle Spatial, PostGIS, etc. This enables VIA solutions to take full advantage of complex spatial querying and generate maps on the fly. In this way, data analysis is done very quickly and dynamically.
Last but not least, an important VIA feature is dynamic generation of high definition images, including automated reports with maps and graphs. These reports can be downloaded as a Word or PDF document containing high definition images for printing. TatukGIS provides the server-side creation of perfect printable images for incorporation into final documents.
