Wednesday, October 10, 2012 Centre for Railway Information Systems (CRIS) showcased RailRadar that was launched to provide a location of a train on a map and visualizes the running-train network, live. RailRadar has been conjointly developed by CRIS and RailYatri team. RailRadar is already live and can be accessed at http://railradar.trainenquiry.com/






“With the launch of RailRadar, we are offering information in an entirely new way about train movement, which is, perhaps, the first for any major railway system in the world,” said Sunil Bajpai, General Manager, CRIS.

“Over the last decade, train network and traffic in India have grown tremendously. We are also very sure that this trend will continue over the next few decades. As railway travelers too, today we also want to know more – beyond just ‘an’ ETA of ‘a’ train at ‘a’ station. As the volume and complexity of information increases – we believe that new methods of information dissemination (associated with Trains and its running information) will be required sooner than later. RailYatri.in’s RailRadar is one such attempt on that line. We believe that value of information/directions can greatly be enhanced when presented graphically rather than just plain text,” he added.

RailRadar has built in functionality with a user friendly interface. The interactive map zooms in and zooms out to get station / train detail. Users can search for a particular station / train to get specific details of trains around the station or running status of a train, location, its route and stoppages. RailRadar gives an overview on train on time and delay status. In case of a mishap/unplanned activity, RailRadar would be able to provide users with an overview of situation and train status across the country.

At present, RailRadar is configured to update/refresh itself every 5 mins. While the updates of the individual trains may vary based on the area where it is currently running. In any scenario, the location and status of the trains displayed on RailRadar will always be 5 or more minutes delayed.


The information and intelligence behind RailRadar is extracted and harnessed from volumes of data from the official Indian Railway’s train running information data.
