Zonar, Esri team to offer real-time fleet data mapping

Posted on April 10, 2012

A new integration between fleet telematics provider Zonar and geographic information system (GIS) provider Esri delivers real-time fleet data layered with sophisticated geographic map information. The resulting system helps companies determine capacity enhancements, improve fuel efficiency, optimize routes and share interactive transportation maps on the Web.

Early adopters of this technology use the integration to:

•  Determine fuel efficiency rates of specific routes with elevation information in addition to longitude, latitude, speed, odometer and fuel usage data.

•  Track vehicle location and diagnostic data in real-time on a map containing company facility and asset locations, preferred fuel stops, maintenance and service locations, or customer delivery points.

•  Provide advanced operational awareness via the integration of real-time vehicle locations with traffic, weather, work orders, and any company-maintained GIS data.

•   Publish Web-based maps displaying real-time locations or recent activity of snowplows and whether the vehicle is actively plowing, de-icing or spreading salt.

“Esri is a perfect complement for Zonar fleet data,” said Mike McQuade, chief technical officer at Zonar. “Zonar tracks longitude, latitude, odometer, speed and fuel, in addition to vehicle diagnostics in our core platform. Esri allows display of fleet locations and other data specific to their operation integrated through Esri’s mapping technology."

Added Wolfgang Hall business development manager for tracking solutions at Esri: “It is very exciting that we can now help our users by merging the two technologies. The ability to display and store Zonar’s detailed GPS location data inside GIS allows our users to leverage advanced spatial analysis and to publish the combined data to mobile units and the Web."
