Policy Support

TN-ITS supports European ITS policy with valuable input to the ITS Directive, ITS Action Plan and the INSPIRE Directive.

Directive 2007/2/EC of the European Parliament and of the Council of 14 March 2007 establishing an Infrastructure for Spatial Information in the European Community (INSPIRE).

ITS Action Plan

Communication “COM(2008) 886 final” of 16 December 2008 of the Commission of the European Communities concerning the “Action Plan for the Deployment of Intelligent Transport Systems in Europe”. On 20 March 2009 a Corrigendum was published as Communication “COM(2008) 886 final/2”, including text that was missing from the first version, inter alia the text of Action 1.3, which is fundamental for TN-ITS.

INSPIRE – Infrastructure for Spatial Information in the European Community

Directive 2007/2/EC of the European Parliament and of the Council of 14 March 2007 (the INSPIRE Directive), published 25 April 2007 and entered into force 15 May 2007, aims to establish an Infrastructure for Spatial Information in the European Community (INSPIRE), to support Community environmental policies, and policies or activities which may have an impact on the environment. INSPIRE is based on the infrastructures for spatial information established and operated by the 28 Member States of the European Union. This makes INSPIRE a unique example of a legislative “regional” approach. The Directive addresses 34 spatial data themes needed for environmental applications, with key components specified through technical implementing rules. [source: INSPIRE web site]

TN-ITS intends to align with INSPIRE by embedding the ROSATTE exchange specification in INSPIRE as an extension for ITS spatial data of the theme Transport Networks (TN), while adding elements that are essential for ITS spatial data but not currently offered by INSPIRE, such as maintenance of the data, quality control and location referencing.

The specifications and guidelines below and many other INSPIRE specification documents can be found at the download page for speci­fi­cations at the INSPIRE web site.
