Traffic and travel information: access to public data for digital road maps

Bedford Hotel

29 March 2011 – 10.00–17.15

Currently, the European Commission is conducting a study regarding the availability of accurate public data for digital maps and their timely updating through cooperation between relevant public bodies and digital map providers. Objective of this workshop is to review the interim results (consultation and state-of-the-art study) with stakeholders and discuss the possible role for European action to ensure fair, simple and transparent access for digital map providers to accurate public road data.

An increasing number of ITS applications rely on the availability of accurate digital maps describing the road network geometry, topology and traffic related map attributes such as traffic regulations. A key pillar of the ITS Action Plan (COM(2008) 886) is the definition of the necessary requirements to make such data that is owned by public authorities, available to digital map producers.
