The evolution of transport
Waka Kothi wanted to earn the trust of stakeholders by providing 100% accurate information in near-real time. The decision was made to consider a better way to extract, collate and analyse information, and a simpler way to provide that information to key stakeholders, specifically by extracting and enriching Waka Kotahi’s motor vehicle register data for reporting purposes.
Utilising FME, the project saw address data being pulled from the data warehouse, before being geocoded with ArcGIS Online and HERE Maps. This process transformed non-spatial tabular data into usable location data, which could then be further enriched by spatially intersecting it with a wide range of authoritative location-data layers, like areas units and mesh blocks from Tatauranga Aoteraroa, StatsNZ.
