Multimode network for locating nearest petrol station
Many times, tourists face a situation where they are lost in a new place and do not know how to reach their desired destination. Sometimes they face an emergency situation like running out of petrol but don’t know the locality of the nearest petrol station. There is therefore need for route guided interactive maps. The interactive map allows the tourist to find the nearest petrol station. Searching is by the way of incidences. The incidence is shown by computer guided Global Positioning System. The tourist clicks on the current position/incidence and then chooses the number of nearest petrol stations of interest for viewing. The interactive map provides visual analysis. A tourist can identify the nearest petrol station and the availability of a service, among other things. The queries performed on the multimode road network dataset are evident that mapping of petrol stations and network analysis can lead to informed decision making. Similar decisions could be achieved through the same concept eg locating the nearest hospital by ambulances in case of emergencies and whether such facilities such as Intensive Care Unit are offered.
