The mobile application of Map of Taipei Amusement (MOTA) now uses the contents provided by the “City Life Database” (CLD).
MOTA builds on the basis of the map/city guide introduced during the summer of 2009. The service offers information and services – including instant traffic updates, taxi call service, train schedules, and more.
Instituted by Taipei City Government, the CLD brings together a wide range of information related to the points of interest in Taipei City, retrieving the data from numerous city departments and agencies. POI categories include food, leisure and recreation, transportation, education, culture, medical service, finance, shopping, public services, and more.
The content of the database is provided by the various departments, agencies, and affiliates of the city government.
In order to keep the database up-to-date, the system collects the information through the following methods: automatic data transfer among systems, batch-uploading, and manual update. The department also made updates mandatory for city agencies, provided a limit on the length of time between each updates and conducts frequent checks to ensure the validity of information provided.
Residents and tourists can access the information on MOTA through mediums such as websites, mobile devices (smart phones, PDA’s, etc.) and information kiosks.
