ETISplus: European Transport policy Information System – Development and implementation of data collection methodology for EU transport modelling.
The ETISplus project is funded by the European Commission (DG Mobility & Transport) under the 7th RTD Programme.
The ETISplus project was a continuation of the lessons learnt within the ETIS project (2005). Its main objectives were the collection, consolidation and/or computation of data in order to establish a new reference data set for transport modelling and the EU transport policy. Particular attention was given to support the TRANS-TOOLS model and the user requirements as defined in several framework projects. The data covered belonged to the domains socio-economic data, transport demand, transport networks, level-of-service and external impacts. Both passenger and freight transport are in the scope of ETISplus. Transport demand was dealt with at the level of origin/ destination (O/D) relations (NUTS-3 level), as well as at the level of network flows. The geographical scope of the databases embraced – apart from EU countries – all accession countries, neighbouring countries, and for some data sets links to the rest of the world.
In addition to the approach followed within the forerunner ETIS project, several innovations were realised in ETISplus, such as the use of intelligent transport systems to provide data feeds, the development of a business model in order to make the system self-supporting, or the introduction of a specific data validation procedure.
IWW was involved in the development of the passenger O/D matrix and was the co-ordinator of the work package that dealt with socio-economic data, transportation network data, passenger and freight level-of-service data (transport impedances), assignment and external effects of transport.
