OpenApp GIS & Mapping in the news

The NRAtraffic mobile app recently featured in the Irish Times. OpenApp have been developing a suite of Intelligent Traffic Systems in partnership with the ERTO Ireland operated Motorway Traffic Control Centre and the National Road Authority(NRA).

OpenApp have worked closely with ERTO; a lead operating agent of the NRA since 2012, laying the foundations with the Incident Management System. The Incident Management System allows ERTO assist as motorway managers in Ireland, to manage, record and report all incidents across Ireland’s Primary Road network, or approximately 65 million journeys a year. These incidents range from weather alerts, a lost driver to major road traffic accidents. This information is then fed to the public via the mobile app, NRA Traffic and the public website NRATraffic.ie. The app and website allows users to save and favourite routes they typically use with push notifications sent to users if there is an incident or roadworks on their route.

“The control centre, managed by port tunnel operator EGIS, will supply information to the NRA phone app which gives motorists route information including about weather, travel time, crashes, road conditions and potential diversions”.
“The app also links to CCTV cameras based on the main inter-urban routes. The NRA stresses the app is for users to plan journeys and not for use while driving”.
(Irish Times - 17/03/14)

The roadworks feed comes from another application built by OpenApp, Road Space Booking which allows ERTO to manage, view and accept bookings from private contractors across their road network. The routes covered across all applications include:

M1, M2/N2, M3/N3, M4/N4, N5, M6, M7, M8, M9, M11/N11, M16/N16, N19, M20/N20, M21/N21, N22, N25, N40, M50, N81, N85, R139, R133, N31, R132, R108, R135, R148, R134, R137, R838, R113, R826, R133, R842, R118, N24, N10

All applications within the OpenApp suite of web based applications are underpinned by modern GIS technologies and mapping services, allowing a superb visual summary of activity across the road network.

Just over a week to go until the Irish Healthcare Awards @HealthAwardsIrl OpenApps' projects in collaboration with the HSE are in the running for "Best Use of Information Technology" & "Public Health Initiative of the Year" 🤞https://www.openapp.ie/openapp-projects-in-collaboration-with-the-hse-shortlisted-for-irish-health-awards-2022/ #IMTIHA22

Very interesting comments by the FDA RWE panel today at #NORDSummit regarding the pros and cons of using #registry data vs. other sources of data for RWE studies. Registry data can be much higher in quality and accuracy but, at times, less efficient.

Thank you to all of our speakers, attendees, and staff for a great first day of the #NORDSummit! We look forward to learning, networking, and discussing important #RareDisease topics together again tomorrow.

"Partnerships with patients and patient advocacy groups increase #DrugDevelopment success."
