Latest GEWI Newsletters
TIC is constantly evolving and as a benefit to GEWI customers, TIC product releases are made available several times each year as a result of over 15 years of development improvements, thanks mostly to input and requests from GEWI customers.
In this issue we detail new product features such as for Twitter and Facebook and a new Source/Result feature which helps to improve third party collected data. All of these features were developed based on customer requests.
You can also read about the features within TIC which make it simple for operators and TIC user groups to provide user feedback directly to GEWI as part of GEWI’s continuous TIC product improvement process.
GEWI uses internal business systems to manage these and other processes. These systems are administered by Frank Zappe who is profiled in this issue. More …

GEWI has always been about data. Each of the TIC main product features deal with various elements of interacting with data. (collect, create, store, monitor, view, distribute).
With more devices generating new and different types of data, resolving technical issues such as harmonization and data exchange are just a few of topics to consider. Data access and ownership are also hot topics for the public and private sector.
In this issue you can read about how MDM, the German Mobility Data Marketplace is addressing these issues. You can also watch a video and see how TIC is used with GPS data, how TIC can be used for graphical VMS signs and how winter road condition data can be processed using TIC.
We congratulate Mathias Müller as he will celebrate his 12th year with GEWI next month. You can read more about Mathias in this issue along with GEWI’s participation in the “Steps to Work” program and attendance at the recent EasyWay forum in the U.K.

September 4th, 2012 marked GEWI’s 20th year in business and we’d like to thank all of our customers, employees and partners in the ITS industry for their part in GEWI reaching this milestone in our company history. GEWI celebrated the anniversary at their 2012 company workshop in St. Petersburg, Russia where all spouses were invited to attend to celebrate this important achievement for the company.
One of the reasons for GEWI’s success is by always keeping a keen eye on “what’s next”, and we will be exhibiting many new features in TIC3 in October at ITS World Congress in Vienna, including TIC’s capabilities for the next generation VMS signs. Immediately following ITS World Congress, GEWI will be presenting a paper on Connected Vehicles at Transpo 2012 in Coconut Point, Florida.
TIC users frequently compliment GEWI on the flexible and friendly User Interface of TIC and much of that credit can be given to Dirk Vatterott who is profiled in this newsletter. More …
For traffic information to be useful to travelers, not only must the data be accurate, but also delivered in a consistent fashion across every platform available to drivers, in a context that suits that specific platform and location. This is exactly how TIC’s DISTRIBUTE feature is designed to perform, and is the topic of this newsletter.
Navigation units and Radio stations have quite different requirements for how the traffic is distributed. The world’s second largest public broadcaster, ARD uses TIC to distribute traffic data on a variety of platforms. Read more details below and view the video describing TIC for Traffic News, a new ARD TIC user group, and a profile of Uwe Stump, a GEWI developer involved in how TIC is used by broadcasters.
As we at GEWI celebrate our 20th anniversary, we also welcome Nils Richter, the newest addition to the GEWI development team. Nils’ primary focus will be enhancing TIC to distribute traffic data using the latest high tech VMS signs which display images, such as traffic flow, as well as text. More …
In real estate, it’s said that the three most important considerations are: location, location, location. With traffic services, this is true as well. In this edition we’ll review the challenges presented by the many methods of location referencing and how TIC software presents a solution that is used for many traffic related projects around the world.
While we’re on the topic of location referencing, we’ll profile Jürgen Terpe, GEWI’s resident expert in map and network data that is central to precise location referencing and harmonization.
GEWI is selectively expanding our global network of authorized partners. Read about Toronto based Era2, a new GEWI partner who will be using TIC for processing traffic data as they design transportation solutions for the Canadian Public Sector market.
As GEWI celebrates our 20th anniversary, we also celebrate our many long term employees whose expertise has contributed to making TIC the most widely used traffic software worldwide. Recently, TISA awarded David Marsh with their highest honor, a TISA fellowship, in consideration for his extensive contributions to the traffic and travel information industry.
GEWI is also busy with conference events, just returning from exhibiting at ITS America and preparing to exhibit at ITS Canada June 10-13th in Quebec City.
