Tele Atlas and VIA, a consulting agency specialized in traffic engineering advice and practical software applications in the fields of traffic and transport, have signed an agreement whereby VIA is using Tele Atlas’ unique Speed Profiles in ViaStat, a leading platform for traffic engineering and traffic management.
With Tele Atlas Speed Profiles, which includes data derived from more than 700 billion speed measurements, ViaStat gives users unprecedented insight into real-world road traffic speeds. The highly granular 5-minute profiles and extensive road network coverage support better analysis of traffic flow, travel time, average road speeds and other traffic management scenarios.
With updated data, Dutch government organizations, including policy makers, road authorities and the police, leveraging the information are able to adapt, with the aim of improving road safety, accessibility and the environment, and to monitor and evaluate the impact of the measurements more quickly.
Tele Atlas Speed Profiles are updated quarterly with the latest consumer driving patterns to provide true average speeds on individual road segments. To ensure a high level of accuracy, roads available in Tele Atlas Speed Profiles have been driven and measured on average more than 2,000 times at different times and during different days of the week. The information is available for ViaStat users through online subscription at and can be accessed with a single login code.
