HERE brings real-time traffic to Esri’s GIS mapping software


Finland: HERE, a Nokia business,  has announced that it is bringing its real-time traffic information to Esri for use in its Geographic Information System (GIS) mapping software used by enterprise and government fleet management companies.

HERE Traffic will help Esri 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.

Chris Cappelli, Director of Sales, Esri, said: “For 10 years, Esri and HERE 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. 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.”

Roy Kolstad, Vice President for Mobile, Web and Enterprise in North America, HERE, said: “Dependable real-time traffic information is crucial to improving fleet operations strategy today and for the long-term. Our traffic offering will complement HERE map content, which Esri has been using for a decade. Through this combination of traffic and map content, Esri will be able to provide a richer location-based analytics offering that will help businesses make more informed decisions.”
