Delhi Transit Routing Pilot

Delhi Transit Routing Interoperability Pilot Call for Sponsorship and Participation

responses due by 10 October 2008

The Delhi metropolitan area, known as the National Capital Region (NCR), is the home to about 17 million people, who travel using 11.2 million vehicles, over 3,000 buses and a host of rail lines. Transportation challenges are underscored by the statistic that due to congestion, NCR residents lose nearly 420 million person-hours every month to commuting between home and work.

While the region's transportation infrastructure is undergoing rapid modernization and expansion, the increasing pressure of large-scale migration from rural areas along with growing commercial activity demands not only investments in increasing the amount of transportation resources, but also investment in making existing options more efficient.

The Delhi Transit Routing Interoperability Pilot (DTRIP) will provide a platform for geospatial data sharing across transportation agencies in the NCR, creating a regional spatial data infrastructure (SDI) upon which interoperable components for routing, congestion management, and mapping can be built.

DTRIP will support these overarching objectives:

  • Link existing investments in the NCR and recent proposals to build transportation information systems based on principles of interoperability for more efficient, powerful solutions.
  • Demonstrate the benefits of interoperability, especially in the context of regional agencies using geospatial data and services in a spatial data infrastructure.
  • Support stakeholders and academic/research agencies to network with geospatial technology providers, both globally and locally, to evolve best practices and standards for interoperability of data and processing services related to transportation domain in general and routing in specific.
  • Address and solve global interoperability problems related to service interfaces between data and processing, based on the use cases for interoperable routing.

OGC has released this Call for Sponsorship and Participation (CFS/P) for DTRIP on September 9, 2008. Responses are due by October 10, 2008. Interested parties should read the CFS/P and answer the Call using the Response Template.
