SBB required modern maps which clearly show their passengers only relevant information like the position of a train station in a city and navigate them where they need to go.
They needed maps fitting the brand design, using the most innovative technology but being provider independent.
Maps for SBB web app run from MapTiler Cloud infrastructure without a need for any administration from SBB.
The base layer is inspired by Trafimage , systematic design of SBB maps, station plans and public transport network.
Maps also can run offline in embedded devices used in their trains’ infotainment system.
The map is designed to highlight rails over highway network. Colors and fonts used in the cartography design are perfectly aligned to fit the company brand with colors and fonts on the web and mobile application.
Information about travelers is not shared with any third party, which is essential for their privacy and security of the company’s sensitive information.
Map labels are displayed in all four official languages spoken in Switzerland including Romansh, and therefore understandable to everyone and giving all citizens equal treatment.
