Dordogne local council (France)
To visualise and get a handle on roadworks using Street View
Dordogne local council uses the road IT system, GeoMap to maintain and run its road network. This app connected to Street View API means maintenance teams can examine the areas to be maintained clearly. With up-to-date data, Street View API means that the state of the roads can be seen with a 360° view, making it easier to organise works (assessing human and technical needs) without having to be there in person.
City of Amsterdam (The Netherlands)
To allocate school places to children according to their proximity to the school
Amsterdam needs to resolve issues with allocating school places to children. As it stands some schools are full and can no longer take new students. The service in charge of schooling uses Distance Matrix APIs and Directions to calculate the distances and itineraries in order to find the closest school to the child’s place of residence.
