    • Abstract:
      In this Age of Information, the digital road network is as essential an element in systems providing customer information, analyzing system performance and marketing data, and monitoring public assets as the road network is to enabling the movement of people and goods through a city. Digital data drives most Advanced Public Transportation System (APTS) automated technologies; and by representing the real world, digital map databases furnish public transportation agencies and their customers with more powerful and efficient tools. The map database is the part of the infrastructure which integrates information from the various Intelligent Vehicle-Highway System user services, and eventually, in and between public transportation agencies. For these reasons, in November 1992, the Advanced Public Transportation Systems of ITS-America formed a working group to investigate the spatial data needs and requirements of APTS applications. The APTS Map Database User Requirements Specification (MDURS) is composed of many parts, including a list of representative application classes, general function statements for each application class, the objects and major attributes required to perform the delineated functional tasks, and a consolidated list and description of spatial objects with their definition, description, attributes, and quality requirements.
