The Bangkok Metropolitan Administration has launched a website and phone applications to allow people to check information about places in Bangkok in real-time.

This platform is made for the convenience of the people, so that they can view map information such as traffic, floods, and accidents through closed-circuit televisions (CCTVs) installed on roads and intersections in real-time.

They can be viewed on the website http://bmatraffic.com/index.aspx or with the mobile application named ‘BMA Traffic’

I went to the web site, clicked on the "English " button, but most all of the site is still in Thai, including the Maps.    c’est la vie

Maybe it is just me, but I find I don’t need street names when viewing a map of Bangkok and know the names anyway, especially in the areas which I visit.

Why anyone would want to know traffic / flooding status of areas they don’t visit is beyond me.

Also how many people actually know the street name / address e.g. Rong Mueang Rd, Rong Muang, Pathum Wan, Bangkok, 10330, where the feck is that I hear you cry, but if I was to say Hua Lamphong Station you would know right away

Hi,

Obviously I do this when away from home :)
For example, had lunch in Terminal 21 a little while back and when it was time to head back to the office I found out it was raining heavily in Asoke. So, quick check revealed it was not raining at home, so rather than waiting for the rain to stop, I went home and worked from home the rest of the day.

Sanuk!
