A group of foreigners around SuperMap’s booth on ISDE6 and discussed about "The Smart City Integrated Management System of Government". After they finally left with satisfaction, Michael Liu, technology consultant from International Business Department of SuperMap Software, changed a satisfaction tone to meet reporter's curiosity: "These experts from the United States are very interested in our regional construction projects for Sweden.”
“Sweden is a high-welfare state, especially care for the elder, children. Distance more than two kilometers, school bus need to escort them a round trip ”, for helping reporters better understand system's "wisdom", Michael Liu draw on the paper : "For example, in one area, there are dozens of students need transportation, so how the school bus to go is the fastest way and how about the speed ,these are all problems" ,He asked himself and answered: "If there is no system, drivers just using their experience to design a route. But now, we only need to input children's addresses into system, then the school bus can guarantee that every child get to school just using the shortest time."
Michael Liu said, what particularly convenient about the system is: if there is new student, simply enter a new address, and then system will be given a new line less than a second. At the same time, the system has "priority" feature. If there are children with disabilities or other conditions requiring special care, the system will automatically take these factors into account.
"One year later, the children in this region greatly increased and need to build a new school, system will consider the most children who cannot walk to school in 20 minutes, factory nearby, sources of pollution, noise and other factors into reasons, and then after overall planning, a reasonable location program is promptly given out.”
Just as Michael Liu said, the Digital Earth goes into every aspect of our lives. Digital River, Digital Mitigation, Digital city ... The Digital Earth is growing at the speed of action than we imagine...
