The architecture of mobile traffic map service

1,460 views

Published on

MOLIT(Ministry of Land, Infrastructure, and Transport) has established NTIC(National Transport Information Center) for effective management of various kinds of transportations in South Korea and released several services that people can use. Gaia3D Inc., has involved in one part of mobile service which displays traffic status on roads, streets, and highways up on geographical map, making people easily check the status of traffc wherever they’re heading. Gaia3D Inc., will introduce not only the experience of implementing mobile traffic map service (iPhone App, Android App, and Mobile Web Client) showing traffic on roads, streets, and highways at NTIC using Squid Proxy Server, GeoServer, and SQL Server but also advanced architecture coming up in 2014. NTIC system collects all kinds of real time traffic data of all highways, routes, streets, and roads in South Korea and divides those collected traffic data into three colors in green, yellow, and red by speed. These colorized traffic data are mashed up with map data to service on mobile devices. Servers carry out tiling traffic map in every 5 minutes and clients receive and display those tiled data. This system aimed at tolerating peak times of two major holiday seasons in South Korea - Chuseok(Korean Thanksgiving day) and Seolnal(Lunatic New Year’s day) when almost 15 million people per day travel at the peakest dat and about 8 million vehicels are poured out to roads, streets, and highways, so the system should be designed to safely handle over 100,000 concurrent connections. The whole system is consisted of two Cache Servers with Squid Proxy, six Map Server with GeoServer, and three Database Server with SQL Server. Real time traffic information and road lines are managed in SQL Server and provided to GeoServer. Traffic map tiles are produced in GeoServer and are passed to Cache Server. The client is designed to request tiles via interface of WMTS(Web Map Tile Service) protocol with Time Tag. The very initail architecture designed in 2012 somehow managed to endure traffic loads at peak times, but had some problems, which was quite disappointing and unexpected results. In order to improve the system, we’ve mainly focused on the enhancement of scalability. Also, we’ve newly redesigned the system into separating tile producing servers and managing static contents using NGINX web server.

The architecture of mobile traffic map service

  1. 1. The Architecture Of MobileTraffic Map Service BJ JANG, Hayan Shin 1
  2. 2. TotalTraffic Information Service 2 Sponsored by NTIC(National Transport Information Center)Mobile Traffic Map Service
  3. 3. Background  About NTIC (our customer)  National Transport Information Center is a national organization belonging to the Ministry of Land, Infrastructure, and Transport  Role: Traffic Information Collection, Processing, Providing  http://www.its.go.kr/Eng/  Collected content  Wide-area(whole Korea) traffic information  Traffic cast CCTV  Vehicle Message Content Service (VMS)  Provided Information  Real-time road flow information  Standardized Node/Link data of roads (for ITS)  Short/long distance travel route information 3
  4. 4. Background  NTIC’s Requirements  Deliver Real-Time Traffic Information to Users  To Disperse Traffic on major national holidays - Lunatic New year’s first day, Chuseok  Environment at System Peak Times  About 30 million people move to visit hometowns and families  Most of them have Smartphone 4
  5. 5. Overview of Main Features Traffic status on roads and highways up on geographical map  Support interactive zoom in/out  3 Steps colorized traffic data  Updates every 5 minutes >40km/h 20~40 km/h <20km/h >40km/h 20~40 km/h <20km/h >80km/h 40~80 km/h <40km/h Road City highway highway 5
  6. 6. Overview of Main Features Traffic status on roads and highways up on geographical map(continue) traffic accidents information CCTV on roads (over 1000 points) KMA Weather Forecast/Warning 6

Architecture(2011) Mobile Data Provider MobileMananger WAS(Tomcat7) Windows Server Info Server GeoServer2.0.3 WAS(Tomcat7) Windows Server Map Server PostGIS 1.5.3 PostgreSQL 8.4 Windows Server Geo DB Server PostGIS Info Server Geo DB Server Map Server • 30,000 users • adopt Open Source GIS • request one-size image non- tiled • don’t consider cache Oracle 7
  8. 8. Problems on Existing System  Absence of Cache Server  Request for same region data  So, Frequent GeoServer Down at Peak Times  Reliability issue  Take lots of time to import traffic data into PostgreSQL  Doubt on GeoServer , PostGIS,PostgreSQL about low performance 8
  9. 9. System Improvement Goals in 2012  NTIC’s Requirements  Support 200,000 Users Per Day  Change DBMS to SQL Server  Consulting about Open Source GIS  Our Solutions  Reconstruct System Architecture and Redevelop SW  Change Mobile Client Request to Tiled Map base  Adopt Squid proxy server with SSD as Cache Server  To determine Effective Tiled Map Time and Region: Using  WMTS interface  content expire time  custom Time tag  Produce Tiled Map data every 5 minutes in advance 9

  11. 11. Results  System Endured at Peak Times but, Not Satisfied Level  Sometimes Response Time went slowly  Transaction increased 10 times per User owing to tiled map  Polling Map Strategy causes unnecessary requests  Squid had in trouble when it reaches to over 100,000 Connections  Impossible to update tiled traffic map data within 5 minutes  Traffic Map Data consist of 10 levels(Zoom level) ~over 1 million tiled maps.  So, within 5minutes, only 8 level-map data can be updated. 11
  12. 12. Results  Scalability Issue  Cache Server UP GeoServer & SQLServer UP Cost UP  Cache Maker requests UP SQLServer Load UP(n times) Cache Server Map Server Cache Server Cache Server Map Server Map Server DB Server DB Server DB Server Bad scalable 12
  13. 13. Improvement Strategy  GeoServer connects PostGIS 1by1 instead of SQL Server-> Cost Down, Speed up Spatial Query  Adopt Memory Disk for Cache Server instead of SSD -> Cost Down  Push Tiled Traffic Map data into Cache Server ->Reduce Transaction time  Drop Polling method every 5 minutes to update traffic map-> Reduce Transactions 13

  16. 16. TileMap Update Idea!  Changing data are only roads  #of Map Tiles that roads across is Not Much!  So, Update Map Tiles Passing roads Only When Traffic Condition Changed, Instead of All the tiles! Mobile Apps can get Changed TileMap Only 16
  17. 17. Improvements 2012 2013 Initial (Total) tile Generation 90 minutes (empty tile included ~over 1,437,000 tiles) 6~7 minutes (road tile only ~183,000 tiles) Update interval of Tile Generation 5 minutes (8 levels, not modified or empty time included) 1 minute (10 levels, modified tile only) Users per day 200,000 >300,000 Scalability Not good Very good In Service Now! 17
  18. 18. Lessons Learned  To persuade customer to adopt Opensource GIS  Need confidence of Performance about Opensource GIS  Make sure that Opensource GIS has equivalent performance to commercial products 18
  19. 19. Q&A  Please Ask BJ Jang via Email ! bjjang@gaia3d.com With experience of this project, he is constructing Mobile Weather Chart Service Using GeoServer and PostgreSQL at KMA(Korea Meteorological Administration) 19
