The author outlines proposals for a spatial database for IVHS (Intelligent Vehicle-Highway Systems) projects in the USA. Systematically encoded knowledge of the street and road network over which vehicles travel is fundamental to the intelligence of IVHS. This information needs to reside in a spatial database (digital map) for use by various IVHS systems. The paper considers: (1) spatial data costs; (2) spatial data infrastructure; (3) IVHS data set requirements; (4) requirements for the IVHS database; and (5) standards for the IVHS spatial database. For the covering abstract see IRRD 867146.
