Road rail air and water transport networks and related infrastructure Includes links between different networks Also includes the trans European transport network as defined in Decision No 1692 96 EC of the European Parliament and of the Council of 23 July 1996 on Community Guidelines for the development of the trans European transport network 1 and future revisions of that Decision
The transport component should comprise an integrated transport network and related features that are seamless within each national border In accordance with article 10 2 of the Directive national transport networks may also be seamless at European level i e connected at national borders Transportation data includes topographic features related to transport by road rail water and air It is important that the features form networks where appropriate and that links between different networks are established i e multi modal nodes especially at the local level in order to satisfy the requirements for intelligent transport systems such as location based services LBS and telematics The transport network should also support the referencing of transport flow to enable our navigation services
The INSPIRE Interactive Data specification platform offers MS data providers two new applications to support in general their initial data scope “identification” task whether their dataset(s) fall under the data scope of INSPIRE or not.
The first application “Interactive Data Specifications” facilitates the use of the INSPIRE Data Specification – Technical Guidelines documents by providing means to study as well as compare selected parts of the INSPIRE technical documentation (from up to 3 data themes).
The second application “Find your scope” has been developed to support MS data providers with identification of the INSPIRE data scope that is relevant to their dataset(s) that they administer. This application is foreseen to be useful especially in situations where data provider’s datasets do not follow exactly the INSPIRE data themes /application schemas content.
The platform also provides links to useful additional resources of information (e.g. INSPIRE Registry, website etc.).
The development of the Toolkit has been supported by ARE3NA, Action 1.17 of the EU ISA Programme.
