ALK Technologies, a Trimble company, announced that ALK Maps, a web-based, customizable interactive mapping platform providing high-quality visualization, has added new map overlays that provide superior route planning and data insight for increased operational efficiency.

Enhancing its robust set of features and functionality, ALK Maps’ new visualization overlays include:

Traffic Incidents—View traffic occurrences, including accidents, roadwork, and weather-related events, identified by an icon directly on the map. The new traffic incident layer provides visibility of potential impacts or delays for current or future routes to improve asset utilization and operational efficiency with more accurate ETAs and re-routing of affected drivers.

Drive Time Polygons—Generate and display polygon boundaries showing how far a driver can travel within an indicated length of time (maximum 120 minutes) from a specified origin or location. Drive time capacity insight within a given geographic area allows companies to ensure appointment times and service commitments are met. It also can increase mobile workforce efficiency by providing data that allows companies to complete more jobs per day or locate truck stops and maintenance facilities in a specific area.

Elevation Routing—Elevation routing helps ensure pressure-sensitive goods are delivered safely, and prevents cargo damage by avoiding roads above a certain elevation. Fewer gradient road changes may also result in fuel efficiency and lessen environmental impact with reduced gas emissions.

Boundary Polygons—Highlight US state and Canadian provincial boundaries, as well as US county and ZIP code boundaries, allowing users to analyze regional data or view assets in localized groupings.
