Wejo and Esri (developer of ArcGIS geospatial software) announced a new joint initiative, which will help users combine the Esri’s geospatial/GIS software with Wejo’s traffic and map data collected directly from connected vehicles in near real time.
Wejo will make its 8.6 trillion data points from more than 10.7 million vehicles available to users of Esri’s ArcGIS, a geospatial/GIS software. Esri will be looking forward to providing to its ArcGIS users-
- Traffic Intelligence that quickly and easily unlocks unparalleled insight into traffic volumes and flows, as well as congestion.
- Journey Intelligence that unlocks a deeper understanding of mobility trends by aggregating unique journey data to show not only journey volumes, but also valuable metrics such as average speed and travel times.
As a result ,users will be able to analyze relationships, test predictions and inform geographical decision-making across a variety of use cases.
“Connected vehicle data is a rich source of information that has tremendous untapped potential,” said Robert Laudati, Director, Global Partners and Alliances, Esri.“However, it is dynamic, high-volume and complex data, and this valuable solution from Wejo will help our joint customers leverage this wealth of timely and accurate information to make insightful, data-driven decisions regardless of experience.”
“In our quest to put our data to work for good in mobility and beyond, we are always looking for new and innovative ways to make our data more accessible and usable,” said Richard Barlow, CEO of Wejo. “Providing traffic and journey intelligence together with the existing location intelligence available through Esri puts the many intricate pieces in the mobility puzzle together. Now organization scan see the bigger picture in one place and make smarter decisions about everything from operational efficiency and economic development to safety, security and sustainability.”
The companies will continue to work together to advance each other’s complementary technologies and visions. Wejo has Bronze status in the Esri Partner Network and recently attended its annual partner conference to collaborate on building a data-powered future of mobility.
Traffic Intelligence and Journey Intelligence will be coming soon in the Esri ArcGIS Marketplace and customer applications are already underway. Additional data solutions are in development.
