"1968" App Upgraded to Provide Info on Crowds at Tourist Spots|新版"1968"App 可掌握全國景點人潮


To support disease prevention, the government is set to announce an upgraded version of the "1968" app on April 28, ahead of the Labor Day long weekend. The app features a color-coded system for 234 tourist attractions in Taiwan, to let the public identify how dense the crowds are at those sites. The data will be updated every 10 minutes to provide the most up to date information.


This is the "1968" mobile phone app developed by the Freeway Bureau. It provides real-time information on freeway traffic conditions. A new feature was recently added as part of the government's disease prevention efforts. It provides color-coded information on the number of people at 234 tourist attractions around Taiwan. Green means normal, yellow signifies more than normal, and red means crowds. The app was tested at 9 a.m. on April 27, and the only scenic spot in Taiwan flashing "red" was Nantou's Jiji Township. There were also several tourist attractions in Hsinchu that were "yellow."

Is it possible that there are more people than normal at Hsinchu's Leofoo Village Theme Park at nine in the morning? It's within the acceptable range.

According to the Ministry of Transportation and Communications, the app uses big data from Chunghwa Telecom to determine how many people are at one attraction at any one time. The numbers are updated every 10 minutes. The iOS app with the new feature is already out, while the Android version will be released before April 29. Some residents have concerns about privacy. The ministry says only total numbers are used and no individual information is involved.

It's only the total, there is no individual information involved. Our base stations will probably know your phone is on and how much big data there are. We can use this to carry out smart traffic management and offer services.

The Central Epidemic Command Center will announce the upgraded app on April 28. In the meantime, the parking lots of tourist attractions will only be allowed to fill to 50 percent capacity. It is hoped this information and the color-coded system will allow people to adjust their itineraries depending on current situations.



打開交通高速公路局的1968路況app,除了有從北到南國道及時路狀,新增的圓形標誌就是景點人潮警示,這是新增的防疫資訊項目,提供全台234個熱點人潮示警,綠色是正常,黃色略多,紅色是擁擠,上午九點多實測,全台唯一擁擠的景點是"集集",而新竹則有部分景點顯示"略多"

國民黨立委 洪孟楷 vs交通部長林佳龍表示:「(這個時候早上九點鐘,有可能新竹的六福村野生動物園人會多嗎?) 這個,它那個就是範圍嘛,就是多大的範圍內。」

交通部表示,這是利用中華電信大數據,掌握人潮概略位置,每10分鐘更新一次人潮示警,目前iOS版本更新上架,安卓系統則會在週三前上架,有民眾擔憂否會有隱私權疑慮,交通部強調是總量管控,沒有涉及個資。

交通部長林佳龍表示:「是就總量,它沒有涉及個資,因為我們基地台附近,大概都會知道說,你手機有開,有多少大的一個數據,用這種方式,來做智慧的交通管理跟服務。」

週二會由中央流行疫情指揮中心召開記者會,正式公布加強版 app,除了景點分為三色警示,景區停車場最大乘載量只能五成,希望以此資訊方便用路人及時掌握景區資訊,能及時調整行程。
