Mapping and routing data

Digital map data for route planning, market analysis, vehicle tracking, site location analysis, territory planning and more.

Digital map data is a key component in many business solutions and is used for route planning, market analysis, vehicle tracking, site location analysis, territory planning and more.

Using the correct mapping data for your company can be the difference between using professional tools that are designed for commercial use, and mapping tools such as google maps which are designed to route cars for consumers.

Mapping data can be grouped into two key types: display maps and analysis maps.

  • Display maps are simply used as a backdrop map to give context to your data.
  • Analysis maps provide additional attributes that enable organisations to perform spatial analysis such as calculating routes or catchments. Many of our web maps offer attributes such as live and historic traffic conditions, traffic restrictions or road slope and curvature.

Real world road networks are complex – even more so for HGVs or vehicles with large or dangerous loads. One-way streets, low bridges, turn restrictions, weight and width restrictions and the increase in environmental areas and parking restrictions creates a challenge for businesses looking to deliver goods and services in an optimal way. CACI has a range of different mapping and routing solutions that provides businesses with the map data that they need to create accurate routes and delivery schedules for specific vehicle types at different times of the day.

Detailed attribute mapping

Premium vector map data used to create the most appropriate routes for your vehicles and detailed data analysis. Available globally, the data contains all roads and map features, together with many attributes that help to analyse and interrogate the data. Examples include road maximum weight, speed limit or administrative area that the feature falls within. If required, CACI can tailor the data to your specific needs.

Truck restrictions

Physical (height, weight, width and length) and legal (e.g. truck not allowed, truck related turn restrictions and trailer forbidden) provide routing software with the ability to create specific routes for specific types of vehicles and not send HGVs along roads that they cannot legally or physically drive along. For example, this data will enable you to not route tall vehicles under low bridges, or wide vehicles down narrow country lanes.

Overview mapping

Backdrop display mapping to provide context to your analysis. Available with different levels of detail from high level global mapping to detailed street mapping. Provided as raster tiles, vector layers or as web maps.

HAZMAT restrictions

Hazardous material (HAZMAT) restrictions can apply to trucks with hazardous goods; trucks with explosive and inflammable goods and trucks with natural goods that can be harmful to water. They can be applied to a road network to identify and forbid vehicles from travelling along roads that they are not permitted to drive along.

Environmental zones

Environmental zones are areas with certain travel restrictions for certain vehicle types, usually based on a vehicle’s emissions level. Vehicles that don’t meet the emissions criteria will usually be subject to a charge or will be forbidden from entering the area resulting in potential changes to planned routes or additional costs for delivery services. CACI have created a comprehensive dataset of both current and planned environmental zones in the UK which can be used for logistics planning and catchment analysis.

Drive time matrices

Drive time matrices provide pre-calculated drive times and distances between every point to every other point in a dataset. They are used for fast querying of routes times and distances and are easily incorporated into your own application. CACI can pre-build drive time matrices using our comprehensive range of road networks and speed data and apply various routing restrictions where appropriate. Alternatively, CACI can provide routing software and API solutions to calculate drive time matrices within your own organisation.

HERE Location Platform web mapping

Global web mapping service provides users with a number of ready-to-use sets of APIs to quickly develop and customise their applications by incorporating maps, placing their data on a map, tracking vehicles, planning routes and more. By using the HERE Location Platform it ensures that your map data is always up to date, it means that you don’t need to store large data files on your infrastructure and that you can also access live traffic data for real-time routing.

Boundary data

Boundaries are used to create territories, analyse shaded trend maps and add an intuitive sense of place to your maps. The two key types are postal and administrative and their size and availability varies significantly across different countries. In addition other types of boundary data is available, such as towns and suburbs, educational areas, flood zones and environmental zones. CACI are able to advise you on the best boundary data for your needs.
