Indian Railways has launched a first-in-the-world online application RailRadar, which is an interactive map on Google that can facilitate passengers to track movements of all trains running across the country.
RailRadar, developed by a Railway PSU Centre for Railway Information System (CRIS) in collaboration with RailYatri, is a live tracker of all passenger trains traffic in real time.
The passengers can locate the trains on real-time basis on both internet and their cell phones. The interactive map will help users to find the exact geographical location of about 6,500 trains on a Google map on real-time basis.
To know the current status of the train, a passenger can enter a train name or number and the system will inform whether the train is delayed or running on time.
The interactive map zooms in and out to get train and station detail. Users can search for a particular station or train to get specific details of trains around the station or running status of a train, location, its route and stoppages.
