In this 2-way data sharing collaboration between Esri, the global mapping service, and Waze, a community-based traffic and transport app, municipal governments can access real-time traffic data provided by the two companies. Data shared from governments through Esri include real-time construction and road closure data. Waze shares their community-collected traffic data in exchange.
Waze already shares and collects traffic data with local governments as part of its Connected Citizens program. By partnering with Esri, governments can more easily share their information regarding real-time construction, crash and road closure data with Waze.
Global mapping company Esri is partnering with Waze to make it easier for governments to begin building intelligent transportation systems in their communities.
