New Map integration

Topic: New Map integration

Dear all

There is a navigation application named Waze and you may know it. It's growing up in our country very fast. It seems that It's map data (like speed limits, addresses and...) are very accurate in our country (other maps have not accurate data for speed limits and  addresses). I checked and found that they use their own map. It seems that Waze has Traffic data and Routing  data and these data are more accurate than other map sources here. Would you please check the possibility of integration this map with Wialon? If we  can use it's traffic data in routing and set Waze map as routing source it will work better every other map here. we compared their application with Maps (google) in smartphones and experienced better results in avoiding traffic jams. Our customers believe that Wialon Logistics can't help them because our sources for routing are not accurate, most of them says no map can show Tehran real traffic data. I agree with them, Tehran is a hell for each map provider in routing services because of many parameters and in top of them traffic jams, I think Waze solved it.

Re: New Map integration

hhamedk, thank you for this idea. We'll check this map and come back to you later.

Do I understand you right that you are interested in Waze maps mostly because of their traffic and routing information, and you need this information in Logistics specifically?

Re: New Map integration

alek, Thanks for early response.

Yes, we are interested in Waze because of accurate traffic and routing information but not only for Logistics, we expect access to speed limits in Wialon itself to use them for speed violations.
I'm not sure we can use reverse geocoding for such new map in WL or not or how we should put such data in WL server. So, Please check this case as well.

hhamedk, since Google purchased Waze there is no official WEB API available for implementing in Wialon.

Hello, Hamed.

Can you provide us with more information about what you heard?

In Waze SDK short description, I cannot find any information about traffic layers API.
Same about the SDK page: seems, it's dedicated only to mobile apps and does not support Waze data, like traffic reports, speed, etc.
