Interactive Road Information System of a Modern City: A GIS and GPS-Based Approach

Kamal Kumar Tanti


This paper conveys the suitability and applications of GIS and GPS technology in the development of an interactive Road Information System (RIS) for a modern city, which will help the planners and administrators to identify the problems associated with rural road development activities, location and provision of appropriate facilities, monitoring and maintenance management of the assets created in the rural areas. This RIS provides an interactive information database that consists of a range of available utility services within the selected road network. This interactive system provides the end-users a list of query-based services. These query-based services include the road connectivity between any two selected points, informations about distances and accessibility, buffering-based information bank and related proximity analysis etc. It will also provide necessary details about different network analysis-based route information (e.g., alternate route, shortest possible route, finding closest facility etc.) in any selected area during various emergency situations.

*2016 Journal Impact Factor was established by dividing the number of articles published in 2014 and 2015 with the number of times they are cited in 2016 based on Google Scholar, Google Search and the Microsoft Academic Search. If ‘A’ is the total number of articles published in 2014 and 2015, and ‘B’ is the number of times these articles were cited in indexed publications during 2016 then, journal impact factor = A/B.
