INFORMATION IN THE FIELD OF HIGHWAYS

L'INFORMATION DANS LE DOMAINE ROUTIER

AN ATTEMPT IS MADE TO DEFINE THE PROBLEM OF ROAD INFORMATION. A DISTINCTION IS MADE BETWEEN: (1) PERMANENT INFORMATION THROUGH TECHNICAL JOURNALS, WORKSHOPS, FILMS, VISITS TO CONSTRUCTION SITES, BOOKS, ETC; (2) DEMAND-RESPONSIVE INFORMATION, FIELD IN WHICH GIANT STRIDES HAVE BEEN MADE. THREE SYSTEMS ARE OUTLINED, THAT ILLUSTRATE THE POSSIBILITIES OFFERED BY MODERN DATA PROCESSING TECHNIQUES: IRRD (INTERNATIONAL ROAD RESEARCH DOCUMENTATION) AND IN RELATED FIELDS CATED (UTI ASSISTANCE AND DOCUMENTATION CENTRE) WHICH PRESENTS DATA ON BUILDINGS AND CIVIL ENGINEERING WORKS, AND THE MICRO-URBA NETWORK IN THE FIELD OF TOWN PLANNING; (3) CONTINUOUS INFORMATION. SEE ALSO IRRD ABSTRACT NO 106831.
