ALK Adds Traffic, Drive-Time Details to Mapping Platform

ALK Technologies
ALK Technologies has expanded its Web-based ALK Maps platform with new map overlays designed to provide more insight for route planners.

The features include an overlay showing traffic occurrences such as accidents, roadwork and weather-related events as icons on the map.

Another map layer displays polygon boundaries showing how far a driver can travel from a specific point within a set amount of time.

ALK also has added map overlays showing geographic elevation and highlighting state, county and ZIP code boundaries.

“Our new capabilities provide tools not only for enhanced transportation route planning but also for improved strategic decision-making,” said Rishi Mehra, director of Web products. “By transforming operational data from numbers to visual, actionable intelligence, ALK Maps can enable businesses to improve their efficiency, productivity and decision- making.”

ALK, a provider of mileage, routing and navigation software, is part of Trimble Navigation Ltd.
