DIGITAL MAPS TO SUPPORT IVHS/RTI

This article describes the requirements of digital maps for use with IVHS/RTI (Intelligent Vehicle Highway Systems/Road Transport Informatics) systems. The role of national mapping agencies in the provision of such data is described, as are the options currently available. These include: a) Cartographic data (point and line); b) Clean data (Unique Junction Coordinates); c) Structured Link and Node Geometry; and d) Structured Data with Associated Attributes. The impact of new technology such as the Global Positioning System (GPS) is also discussed. For the covering abstract see IRRD 867248.
