NSW Road Traffic Authority installs ArcPad Wireless Extension LinkPad

After a series of statewide trials the Road Traffic Authority of New South Wales in Australia has installed the CommandMap system for real time incident reporting.

CommandMap is expected to be available to RTA staff in the 1st quarter 2007. RTA staff can then record incidents on their ArcPad Mobile GIS system anywhere in the state while the information is viewed at the RTA’s Sydney Traffic Management Centre (TMC) which runs ArcGIS Server. Field staff have opted for both GPS enabled Panasonic Toughbook computers as well as wireless enabled PDAs. Initial trials have shown great success with real time recording of data as well as photos which are viewed at the TMC in Sydney

The rollout by RIA MobileGIS is the latest of a string of organisations that have been testing this technology using Telstra, the national telco service.
