Navigation Intelligence & Location Based Services

Das Projekt lief bis Juni 2019 und wurde als HeiGIT gGmbH weitergeführt. Aktuelle Informationen finden sich auf der Webseite des HeiGIT

Nutzung, Qualitätssicherung und Veredelung von nutzergenerierten Geodaten für Verkehr, Mobilität, Navigation und Routing

Während z.B. Logistikunternehmen Anfahrtswege stets optimieren müssen, suchen Outdoor-Sportler nach Routen, die ihren individuellen Ansprüchen genügen. Um solch unterschiedliche Szenarien zu gewährleisten, müssen skalierbare, zuverlässige und innovative Geo-Services geschaffen werden, die maßgeschneidert auf die Nutzungsanforderungen angepasst sind. Hierzu entwickeln wir global verfügbare Services und Schnittstellen, die eine Vielzahl spezieller Mobilitätsprofile mit wesentlichem Mehrwert für den Nutzer bieten.

Unsere Leistungen

  • Verkehr- und Mobilitätslösungen, Erreichbarkeitsuntersuchungen, Datenanalyse und Modellierung in Bezug auf Mobilität und Transport
  • Entwicklung von Cloud-Lösungen sowie Schnittstellen (APIs) für spezialisierte Routing- und Navigationslösungen mit globaler Abdeckung
  • Entwicklung spezifier Web-basierter und mobiler Dienste und Anwendungen mit geographischem Kontext
  • Langjährige Expertise von OpenStreetMap-basierten Diensten und Qualitätssicherung von nutzergenerierten Daten für Ortsbasierte Dienste
  • Datenaufbereitung und –management, sowie Hosting in Deutschland unter Berücksichtigung von Datenschutz und Privacy
