Wejo and Esri announced a new joint solution that will augment the power of Esri’s geographic information system (GIS) technology by providing actual road data from Wejo. Users will be able to complement the existing curated data behind Esri’s powerful location services with traffic and mobility intelligence collected directly from connected vehicles in near real time.
More than 350,000 organizations—including departments of transportation, engineering and construction firms, public safety organizations and insurance providers, among others—rely on Esri for location services and accurate, informed maps developed by using Esri’s ArcGIS technology. Wejo will make an additional 8.6 trillion data points from more than 10.7 million vehicles available to users of Esri’s ArcGIS, a system that connects people, locations and data using advanced mapping and analysis.
This solution will be enabled by Wejo’s Intelligence product suite. Initial launches will be:
- Traffic Intelligence that quickly and easily unlocks unparalleled insight into traffic volumes and flows, as well as congestion.
- Journey Intelligence that unlocks a deeper understanding of mobility trends by aggregating unique journey data to show not only journey volumes, but also valuable metrics such as average speed and travel times.
As a result ,users will be able to analyze relationships, test predictions and inform geographical decision-making across a variety of use cases.
The companies will continue to work together to advance each other’s complementary technologies and visions. Wejo has Bronze status in the Esri Partner Network and recently attended its annual partner conference to collaborate on building a data-powered future of mobility.
Traffic Intelligence and Journey Intelligence will be coming soon in the Esri ArcGIS Marketplace and customer applications are already underway. Additional data solutions are in development.
