LOD-RoadTran18 – Supporting the cross-border use of Road Traffic Data with Linked Open Data based on DATEX II

The LOD-RoadTran18 (Supporting the cross-border use of Road Traffic Data with Linked Open Data based on DATEX II) project aims to support the re-use of dynamic Road Traffic Data in two Member States, namely Czech Republic and Spain. This Action will make the European Data Portal findable, accesible, interoperable and reusable. It will also connect the portal to any other sector data by using Linked Open Data (LOD).

This project will improve the basic access service to open traffic data through the LOD enhanced Traffic Information System (TIS), according to the ITS Directive (2010/40/EU). The Action will help with viewing and downloading data, but also will improve the extraction of meaning from it, allowing other types of services which can be only achieved with the use of LOD. On the other hand, this project will propose an applicable EU-wide evaluation and monitoring framework for assessing the impact of the re-use of data. It will also offer a toolkit for National Access Points in other Member States aimed to the use of an specific common metadata model.

This project is co-financed by the European Commission through its Public Open Data call from the 2018 CEF Telecom Call – Public Open Data (CEF-TC-2018-5).
