Curious to bring “Traffic Flow” to NAB
Part of the new Traffic Flow package, Traffic Producer leverages the mapmaking power of Curious World Maps; particularly in the area of illustrating traffic reports.
At NAB2006 Curious Software will showcase its new Traffic Flow platform, combining its Curious Traffic Producer and Curious Map Presenter to offer broadcasters a complete solution for the design, production and on-air presentation of their traffic maps.
Traffic Producer targets the mapmaking power of Curious World Maps specifically at illustrating traffic reports. The simple, template-driven user interface allows both graphics and non-graphics professionals to quickly focus on the area of interest, add storytelling details and create still or animated maps that are ready for air in a single click.
With Traffic Producer users create a full rundown of maps illustrating different traffic incidents in a city or area. Features include drag and drop symbols that can be added to the map to illustrate accidents or roadblocks, plus the ability to highlight roads to show traffic state. The street database can be searched quickly using street names and house numbers, street intersections or GPS co-ordinates. Animation is automatic, created with wizards, and the final still or animated maps can be ready for air in seconds.
