scope:

This International Standard specifies the conceptual and logical data model and physical encoding formats for geographic databases for Intelligent Transport Systems (ITS) applications and services. It includes a specification of potential contents of such databases (data dictionaries for Features, Attributes and Relationships), a specification of how these contents shall be represented, and of how relevant information about the database itself can be specified (metadata).

The focus of this International Standard is on ITS applications and services and it emphasizes road and roadrelated information. ITS applications and services, however, also require information in addition to road and road-related information.

EXAMPLE 1 ITS applications and services need information about addressing systems in order to specify locations and/or destinations. Consequently, information about the administrative and postal subdivisions of an area is essential.

EXAMPLE 2 Map display is an important component of ITS applications and services. For proper map display, the inclusion of contextual information such as land and water cover is essential.

EXAMPLE 3 Point-of-Interest (POI) or service information is a key feature of traveller information. It adds value to enduser ITS applications and services.

Typical ITS applications and services targeted by this International Standard are in-vehicle or portable navigation systems, traffic management centres, or services linked with road management systems, including the public transport systems.

The Conceptual Data Model has a broader focus than ITS applications and services. It is application independent, allowing for future harmonization of this International Standard with other geographic database standards.
