This project is to develop an online traffic information which provides drivers with online traffic conditions like accidents, roadworks and traffic jams. It is believed that XML is suitable since it is designed to describe and focus on data, especially structured data. The Extensible Markup Language (XML), which is derived from Standard Generalized Markup Language (SGML), is a simple, flexible text format, Unicode-base metalanguage: a language for defining markup languages. XML is not limited by any programming language, operating system or software vendor. By being platform independent, XML can provide means for achieving interoperability between different programming platform and operating systems. The following outcomes have been achieved: 1. A graphical display section consists of map of Singapore with incident icon like traffic light spoilt, accident and road works. Each of these icons consist an XML document. 2. A search engine which requires the end-user to input parameters like road name and date. Results are then displayed from the search and the end-user clicks on the required link to display the XML document.
