Navigation Intelligence & Location Based Services

Analyses and Utilization of Volunteered Geographic Information (VGI) from the Crowd for Mobility, Navigation and Routing Services

Navigation and Routing play an important role for different kinds of purposes within the context of mobility. For example logistics companies depend on optimized access routes for freight deliveries, while hikers and cyclists continually seek for individually adapted trails. Answering such individual requirements needs a sophisticated set of specialized routing and navigation profiles, optimized for the specific user. To this end, we process and enhance rich and crowd-generated Volunteered Geographic Information to deliver specific services providing maximum benefit for the user.

Our Services

  • Traffic- and Mobility Solutions, Accessibility Analysis, Data Analysis and Modelling related to Mobility and Transportation
  • Development of Cloud-Services and APIs for specific Routing- and Navigation solutions with global coverage
  • Design and Development of both Web- and Mobile Applications using the Spatial Context
  • Many years of expertise in OpenStreetMap-based Services and Quality Assurance of user-generated content

New ORS Jupyter example about Fleet Scheduling for Disaster Response with ORS and VROOM

Routing optimization in a humanitarian context Routing optimization generally solves the Vehicle Routing Problem (a simple example being the more widely known Traveling Salesman Problem). A more complex example would be the distribution of goods by a fleet of multiple vehicles to dozens of locations, where each vehicle has certain time windows in which it can operate and [...]
