Big Data – National Logistics Observatory
In recent years, the Colombian economy has increased its production and its presence in international markets, as a result of its internationalization process. Both public investment and private investment have been concentrated on the development of new infrastructure, however, not necessarily in the reinforcing transport services. The high cost of logistics to transport goods and passengers in the country, strongly influenced by Colombian geography and the dispersion of logistics information has led to the creation of the National Logistics Observatory (ONL).
Web platform for the integration, analysis and dissemination of information in the logistics sector
ONL is a strategic tool to capture, analyze and disseminate national logistics information, generating indicators, and a quantitative model that facilitates the efficient decision-making regarding public policies and the prioritization of public and private investment, to Improve the country’s competitiveness. The platform users 48 indicators classified in 6 groups that represent the thematic axes of the logistics sector. The solution includes a Web portal component, Business Intelligence (BI) and Big Data components, and a Geographic Information (GIS) component. The ONL Web portal (https://onl.dnp.gov.co) constitutes the functional framework of the solution and has been implemented following the Digital Government strategy and interoperability and Open Data criteria. It includes: indicators, GIS viewers, analytics, Big Data, news, events, among others. The Big Data module serves as support for the strategic decision. Through this, descriptive and predictive analyzes can be performed using GPS macrodata processing and algorithms for the generation of visualizations on maps.
