Standardisation

CEN/TC 278 is responsible for managing the preparation of standards in the field of Intelligent Transport Systems (ITS) in Europe. It serves as a platform for European stakeholder to exchange knowledge, information, best practices and experiences in ITS.TN-ITS is involved in the works of WG7 regarding standardization of static geographic road network data (ITS spatial data).

Objective

In broad terms, the objective of the WG is to develop a set of standards for data exchange between public road authorities on one side and mapmakers and other users of such data on the other side.

A longer-term objective is to transform, in a follow-up action, the CEN Technical Specification, once it has been adopted, to a European Standard, while taking into account acquired experience of initial implementations.
