Lansing, MI, July 21, 2010 -- IDV Solutions today announced the launch of TransportationWatch, a touch-enabled web application highlighting data pertinent to transportation safety. TransportationWatch consists of an interactive map that invites the user to explore data sets used by government agencies in crisis response, situational awareness, and homeland security. The HTML 5 interface provides new and innovative ways to interact with government information on an iPad, an iPhone, or other touch-enabled device.
TransportationWatch is built on Visual Fusion software from IDV Solutions. Visual Fusion is used to quickly build business intelligence applications that unite disparate data into interactive web-based data visualizations (maps, timelines, and analytics) for superior context, rapid insight, and decisive action.
“More and more organizations are adopting touch-enabled devices in the enterprise,” commented Ian Clemens, IDV Solutions CTO. “Many of our customers are interested in an iPad version of Visual Fusion. TransportationWatch is touch computing in action.”
TransportationWatch leverages the power of Bing Maps for displaying all the interactive content in the context of location. This public version of data sources commonly used by government agencies presents a cross section of data, such as seaports, airports, current weather, historic hurricanes, and nautical charts. TransportationWatch also has a Silverlight version counterpart for users without access to a touch-enabled device, and the application smartly determines which of the two versions to load based on the user’s browser. The application is open to the public and available at http://vfdemo.idvsolutions.com/transportation/ .
