Now-a-days, managing train movement between stations in railways has become staggering task which involve human efforts like data transfer through phone. It is needed to be continuously monitoring the trains approaching from neighboring stations, for safe train movement due to high density of trains on a track. Conventionally, station master monitor approaching/departing trains by using Route Relay Interlocking (RRI) system which can monitor trains between station blocks. In this paper, a GIS Augmented Automatic Train Monitoring (GAATM) system is proposed for station master to monitor approaching/departing trains to/from station.
