Urban Mapping, the leading provider of location-rich content for interactive applications, has announced advanced features for Routeserver™, the company’s standard-setting multi-modal routing engine that supports walk, drive, bus, train, subway and other modes of transportation.
Developed with pedestrian navigation in mind, Routeserver can be ported to specific hardware and platforms, supporting true “on board” navigation. Additionally, the routing engine can be deployed for large-scale interactive publishers or as a hosted solution for rapid implementation.
The new enhancements to Routeserver enable a range of advanced capabilities such as dynamic re-routing incorporating real-time mass transit events, narrative customization to support multi-lingual or editorial conventions and “cognitive transfers,” a new option in route customization that recognizes varying perceptions of wait times.
With the combination of Routeserver and its URBANWARE™ Mass Transit database, which provides highly detailed data for over 100 pedestrian-specific attributes, Urban Mapping enables an advanced pedestrian navigation experience for over 70 systems in the United States, Canada and Europe.
