Bangalore is known mainly for two things- firstly, the IT Capital Of India; and secondly the never ending traffic problems of the city. Bangalore traffic is horrible- On a weekday, either at around 9 or 10 AM, and around 7 or 8 PM you are bound to be stuck in some traffic jam. Bangalore and Mumbai are on the top of the list of traffic jam struck cities. Well, there is a really cool solution which can be used by bangaloreans to view live traffic updates from different major areas in bangalore, and accordingly plan their route to wherever they wish to go.This service is provided by mapunity and they currently provide this service for four major places in India.
1)Bangalore - www.btis.in
2)Delhi - www.dtis.in
3)Hyderabad - www.htis.in
4)Chennai - www.chennaitraffic.in


For this tutorial, I have Explained in detail the services for the Bangalore Websites. Similar features are available for the other places as well.



The Site for bangalore is called BTIS and it can be accessed by http://www.btis.in . Now Here are some of its features :

1)Live Traffic Update in the Form Of A Map
BTIS shows you live traffic update in the form of a map with indications like red dots meaning heavy traffic , orange dots meaning mild traffic and green dots meaning smooth traffic.

2)Live CCTV View
This allows you to view CCTV footage of most of the major areas in bangalore . So that you have an idea as to how bad the traffic situation really is.

3)List Of Areas With Heavy Traffic
THis list called Current Delays gives you the List of areas which are currently blocked.


4)Directions From One Place TO Another
Just enter your Source and Destination and You would see a map with the route to follow with details like distance , auto fare etc.

5)Bus Routes
Just enter your Source and Destination and You would see a list of Bus Nos. for that route

6)Current Live Position Of A Certain Bus
This is another cool feature which gives you the current position of a certain Bus no.

7)Carpool List For A Certain Route
Just enter the route you follow daily and get a list of carpools which you could join!!

8)Mark Locations And Send Directions To your Friends

It is a great idea. Thanks alot for sharing this to all. I have question regarding this. These sites are providing information in the form of maps and with some visuals. Is there a way to get it in raw format some thing like RSS feeds or in some xml formats so that it will be more helpful to mobile users.
