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).


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.
