Seamless cross-border data for safety-related road information
Seamless, cross-border geospatial information supplied by the European Location Framework (ELF) Project is helping to speed up the exchange of safety-related road data as part of the European Union Location Framework (EULF) Transportation pilot scheme.
This is the first time the ELF infrastructure has been used to deliver data.
A new video released by the EULF shows how the scheme will enable commercial map providers to access the most up-to-date road network information, such as speed limits and access restrictions, from public authorities. As a result, users of their navigation systems and databases will benefit from improved data quality and accuracy.
The pilot, currently running in Norway and Sweden, builds on the requirements of the Intelligent Transport Systems (ITS) Directive and the INSPIRE Directive and uses the TN-ITS protocol.
The EULF action is managed by the European Commission’s Joint Research Centre (JRC) and supported by the Interoperability Solutions for Public Administrations (ISA) programme. ISA promotes the development of cross-border solutions for the modernisation of Public administrations in Europe.
