The advanced traveler information system (ATIS) is a type of intelligent transportation system application areas that implements emerging computer, communication, and information technologies to provide vital information to the users of a system regarding traffic regulation, route and location guidance, hazardous situations and safety advisory, and warning messages. ATIS requires a large amount of data for processing, analysis, and storage for effective dissemination of traveler information to users. A geographical information system (GIS) allows large data to be effectively processed, stored, analyzed, logically associated, and graphical displayed. Thus, GIS-based ATIS provides a convenient and powerful tool for storage and graphical representation of information, which can be useful users. Further, by availing the powerful GIS functionalities, a user can conceive a problem and allow the appropriate software to assist him in the decision-making process regarding optimum route selection and trip planning. In this paper, the authors present a GIS-based ATIS for Hyderabad City, India. Development of this GIS-based ATIS has been carried under the ArcView GIS environment. This user-friendly system provides comprehensive information about Hyderabad City, such as road networks, hospitals, government and private offices, stadiums, bus and railway stations, and tourist places within the city limits. This system can be used effectively in bus stations, railway stations, airports, and tourist information centers, as well as in personal computers to provide information to travelers and to facilitate travel.
