The publication describes the possible use of tele-geoprocessing as a synergy of modern IT solutions, telecommunications and GIS algorithms. The paper presents a possibility of urban traffic monitoring with the use of mobile GIS indicators of dedicated monitoring system designed for taxi corporation. The system is based on a stationary and mobile software package. The optimal and minimal assumptions for the monitoring of urban traffic are described. They can be implemented as a verification or supplementary tool for complex and high cost transportation management systems or throughput of city streets monitoring systems. The authors show limitations of standard monitoring and GNSS positioning in urban area. They indicate the possible improvement in the functionality of the application to the calculation of supplementary vector data of possible trajectories and based on it, the correction of the data received from the satellite positioning.
