Esri, Waze Forge Public Sector Transportation Systems Partnership; Andrew Stauffer Comments

GeocodingEsri and Waze have forged a partnership to develop intelligent transportation systems for government agencies to share publicly-available traffic information with their communities.

Current government customers of the Esri ArcGIS platform will be able to exchange data and merge information into emergency dispatch and street maintenance systems through the Waze Connected Citizens Program, Esri said Wednesday.

“Municipalities can now leverage real-time reports without having to invest in sensor networks or an Internet of Things infrastructure,” said Andrew Stauffer, manager of civic technology at Esri.

The partnership also aims to help communities and governments expand the scope of data they map and manage with Waze’s nearly 65 million monthly active users across the world.
