    How Big Data Can Be Leveraged for Transportation Planning

    Transportation planners and modelers demand accurate and robust tools to conduct their everyday work. These tools require analytics and visualization based on a Big Data foundation.

    Traditionally, transportation managers have owned the data gathering systems that provide them with the information they need to keep things flowing, but in the last few years, the types and numbers of data sources have increased exponentially and ownership has shifted. We still have the systems that belong to infrastructure operators; however, now, we also can add data derived by private companies such as TomTom.

    Transportation planners are now turning to customized tool sets that can be used for traffic analyses, forecasts and GIS-based data management. PTV Group, a TomTom partner, is a leading provider of these in-demand tools. PTV Visum consistently models all road users and their interactions and has become a recognized standard in the field of transport planning. Transportation experts use PTV Visum to model transport networks and travel demand, to analyse expected traffic flows, to plan public transport services and to develop advanced transport strategies and solutions.

    In this webinar we will examine

    • How big data is collected, validated and managed
    • Tools for working with big data
    • Case study applications: travel time analysis.

    You will learn how PTV Group and TomTom are setting the standard for data analytics.


    Steve Perone, President of PTV Group North America

    Ken Clay, Marketing Manager at TomTom

    Who should attend

    Data purchasers, authorities looking to analyze large data sets, existing clients wanting to decentralize network tasks, private sector partners and federal, state and local government officials

    Turning Up the Speed of GIS with MapInfo Raster

    Spatial analysis is about releasing insights from data and visualizing it in a way that can be easily communicated. Before we get to the maps, it’s all about the data. Unfortunately, our ability to process and present data has been limited by the capabilities of the available GIS applications; big datasets have traditionally represented a trade-off between long waiting times and low resolution images. That’s just changed.

    MapInfo Pro Raster will revolutionize the way GIS professionals use grid and imagery data and will dramatically improve efficiency. MapInfo Pro Raster is a next generation raster grid-based engine and data format that offers high speed processing without the traditional trade-off in quality. These capabilities are implemented across a complete location intelligence suite, bringing new applications from the desktop to the server and across the web and mobile.

    In this webinar you will learn

    • How to drive down analysis times by visualizing data over huge areas
    • What it’s like to open huge data files — from 10’s to hundreds of gigabytes — in seconds and get working moments later
    • What becomes possible by combining the strengths of vector and raster-based data and analysis techniques
    • How these exciting changes in the way we work will impact all GIS professionals, but particularly those in insurance, retail, the public sector and Telco
