Divisione Cargo is the cargo transport department of Italy’s largest railway company, Trenitalia S.p.A., formerly Ferrovie dello Stato S.p.A., formed during a recent restructuring of the company. With around 50,000 railway wagons, the company is an important international player in the transportation sector. Under assignment for IconMedialab Milan, activeZ took part in implementing a dynamic geo-mapping solution for Trenitalia.
Web site Trenitalia Cargo is part of Trenitalia site which is concentrated on transportation of goods. Site contains basic information about stations, waggons, transportation terms for different types of goods, and various cargo services.
Our task was building the map search and map drawing part. In collaboration with UbiEst, mapping and geocoding information solution provider, the objective was to make pages where user gives address and then gets three nearest stations or path from nearest station to selected address.
Although the rest of the site is made in JSP technology, our module was developed using PHP technology. UbiEst provided basic classes and service for map drawing. We extended the classes and customized them for the needs of Trenitalia.
