Supergeo Technologies, a global provider of GIS software and solutions, is assisting Kaohsiung City, Taiwan, in analyzing  public bike system networks. SuperGIS Desktop 3.2 is helping administrators and citizens conveniently use the public transportation system for bicycles, the company said. Kaohsiung City has decided to provide its citizens with public bikes.

Biking is a popular transportation method and personal leisure activity for the people of Kaohsiung City. Determining where to establish bike stops that will attract locals to use the bikes, without affecting the current busy traffic patterns, is the most important issue for administrators.

The dilemma facing administrators is that bike stops shoud be near facilities, and the distance between each stop shouldn’t be too far. Through GIS technologies, decision makers can easily overlay the different layers that show diverse impact factors, such as nearby subway and train stations, and the most used pick-up and return routes.

Also, SuperGIS Desktop 3.2 provides rich spatial analysis functions. With the buffer analysis, for instance, various factors can be analyzed and displayed so administrators can optimize the vehicle supplement.
