The Cycling Team Management System
Nowadays, riding bicycle has been a popular recreational sport in Taiwan. Students on campus rely on bicycles especially. In order to promote riding safety and seize road condition for students, Taipei Chengshih University of Science & Technology (TPCU) integrates visualized map website and App on smart phones to show position and condition of bicycle riders (students) instantly.
In order to know riders’ instant riding condition, TPCU developed an App applied on smart phone to record and send back riders’ current point. That is to say that every rider has to carry a smart phone while riding for recording and transmitting the moving trace to the server.
In order to react to contingency that might happen while people are riding bicycles, The Cycling Team Management System should not only have front-end website to display the map and back-end platform to manage and enter rider’s personal information such as name, telephone number and emergency contact person, etc
The development of The Cycling Team Management System consists of website platform for displaying information of cycling team and the cycling team APP. Adopting SuperGIS Server 3 as map server, the website platform allows users to publish and manage the existing map information. Meanwhile, the cycling team APP, designed for sending current position of riders back to the server, allows riders to install in Android system on smart phone and transmit the related information during riding bicycles.
SuperGIS Server 3 is designed for enabling the organizations to create, manage, integrate and publish various types of GIS services. Through it, the spatial data and spatial image in all types as well as GIS functions can be utilized as GIS services in desktop, mobile and web applications over the internet. In The Cycling Team Management System, SuperGIS Server 3 is important in managing geographic dat.
