Triona to develop new ”Krönt vägval karta” for SDC

12 October 2017

Triona has won an order to develop a new version of SDC’s web application “Krönt vägval karta”. The current application allows users to make manual distance calculations and see the chosen route on a map. There is also the possibility to see a road’s properties such as speed restrictions and bearing capacity class. Users can also report inaccuracies in the distance calculation or incorrect road information via the web application.

“Triona has experience in the development of similar solutions and a wealth of expertise in GIS. They already deliver the platforms which SDC use for the actual distance and route calculations as well as the production of the data which is used. This means that Triona will get a larger overall responsibility which in turn simplifies our supplier management” Annika, SDC

Triona is already responsible for delivering the “skogliga nationella vägdatabasen (SNVDB) – Forestry National Road Database to SDC. The database is a so-called master database where the data is updated from the Swedish National Road Database (NVDB), which is managed by the Swedish Transport Administration (STA). Triona’s product Transport Network Engine (TNE™) is used to implement the SNVDB, which means that the management of past, present, and future roads is supported. The data is used for example in distance calculations and in businesses which manage plant, operation, and maintenance in the forestry road network. Distance calculations are done with Triona’s product Triona Routing Engine (TRE). Several forestry companies in Sweden also use Triona’s product VFS (Road Administration System) for support in the complete road administration process, from planning and construction of new roads to the maintenance and refurbishment of existing roads.

SDC is an economic association with around fifty members. SDC is the information hub within the Swedish forest industry for production information, stock movements, and measuring for timber transport and biomass heating plants.
