What is Traffweb?

  • Traffweb is a web app providing live access to published data through any standard Internet browser.
  • Simple to use, fast and configurable.
  • Specialist modules for highways include traffic orders, signs, markings, road accidents and consultation.
  • Serves up information rich data in an easy to understand format.
  • Data remains owned and controlled by its originator.
  • Cost effective and efficient.
  • Fully hosted, managed solution from the Buchanan Cloud.

Benefits

  • An efficient way of handling information requests, saving staff time and associated printing and postage costs.
  • High quality information provided to all stakeholders, including colleagues in other departments, partner organisations, council members and the public.
  • Practitioners remain in control of the data.
  • A fully managed system available at a fixed cost.
  • Efficient data structure allowing for multiple data views, and search tools, specifically designed for the different types of users.
  • Secure access to restricted areas.

Improving the flow and quality of information will reduce the time taken to answer common queries. Allowing access to the published source data will free up staff time and help to provide a service to a wider user base including the public.

How does it work?

However complex the central database, users see only the view of the data that has been configured for their needs. They can then click on the map to 'drill down' to reveal more detail of associated data, images and documents. This approach keeps the interface clean and simple whilst catering for all types of user.

Finding the right location

Standard Gazetteers such as Address Point, Code Point and NLPG can be used to find a map location by street name or postcode. Navigation tools include roam, pan, zoom and bespoke search functions.

Zoom layering causes suitable base mapping to be displayed for the chosen scale.

Finding the right information

Users can select the type of information they want to see, for example, camera sites, proposed traffic orders or pay and display parking bays. Where the data changes over time, a date may be selected to view the historical situation at that time.

Drill down into layers of information

Simple queries such as 'where can I park?', are answered without initially providing too much detail. However, more information is available (from the underlying traffic order, for example) to allow TraffWeb users to answer their own detailed requests. This saves the time of authority staff and reduces the number of FoI applications.
