SNCF Maps, developed by HaCon for French national railway company SNCF, shows real-time data for all French trains and their connections, linking over one million operational train messages with about 5,000 timetable data sets of rail passenger traffic.
For the first time in the history of HAFAS Live Maps, HaCon calculates train movements by combining GPS and positioning data received from track stations which makes the map even more precise. The new HAFAS client interface HCI guarantees real-time display of the train positions.
A specially designed editor enables SNCF to adapt the software to their needs, for example to show only certain trains or maps.
The customised editor also permits SNCF to configure and integrate the map view with various different web applications.
