TrafficLand, the nation's largest aggregator of live traffic video, is filling in some of the remaining gaps in its sprawling coverage.

Last week, the Virginia-based company said it had reached agreement with the California Department of Transportation (Caltrans) and the Los Angeles County Metropolitan Transportation Authority (LACMTA) to add some 347 cameras in Los Angeles and Orange County to its network. That area--arguably the traffic capitol of the nation--was conspicuously missing from TrafficLand's previous coverage in California.

After installation in the Caltrans and LACMTA control centers, anticipated in Fall 2010, TrafficLand make the video available for media, public safety agencies, mobile application providers and others.

Since 2008, TrafficLand has worked with Caltrans to serve video from 167 traffic cameras in the agency’s Riverside district. With the addition of the 104 cameras in Los Angeles and 243 in Orange County, TrafficLand will be able to provide seamless, live traffic camera coverage from over 500 cameras across the greater Los Angeles metropolitan region.

?Monday (August 2), TrafficLand said it had integrated 108 Miami, Fla.-area traffic cameras operated by Florida Department of Transportation (FDOT) into its national network. Miami joins Orlando, Tampa, Fort Lauderdale, Jacksonville, Daytona Beach and the Florida Keys among TrafficLand's offerings in the state.

The total number of cams viewable at TrafficLand.com is now more than 8,000, in more than 200 cities.

?“TrafficLand is having a record year signing DOT partners in top markets because of our unique ability to ensure that their video is available when it’s needed,” said Lawrence Nelson, TrafficLand CEO. “TrafficLand’s patented Image Engine technology and dedicated network infrastructure delivers a sustainable solution for FDOT video sharing—across technology platforms--which is critical during high demand spikes that occur with traffic incidents and weather emergencies such as approaching hurricanes.” ?
