Commitment description
This commitment aims to promote the opening up and reuse of public data and informing travelers in the land transport field through designing and establishing a unified database for land transport stations at the national level as well as its dissemination in an open format "National Repository of Stations". In fact, establishing this database will enable the unifying of identifiers and nomenclatures and the collection of all data on geographical coordinates and other information. In addition, data will be disseminated in an open format to facilitate its reuse in order to develop services for travelers (via web or smartphones...). In this context, the following actions will be completed:
- Undertaking an inventory of stations on regular transport means (buses, metro, trains,...) and irregular trans port means (individual or collective taxis, rural transport means,...) at the national level and the collection of all data related to stations such as type, characteristics, equipment, lighting, methods of access especially for people with special needs, geographical coordinates, administrative reference, owner of the station, entity in charge of the station exploitation, and photos of the concerned station;
- Unifying identifiers and nomenclatures especially for the stations shared between different transport companies;
- Designing and establishing a unified database on land transport stations at the national level;
- Publishing a database in an open format to facilitate its reuse in order to develop passenger-oriented services.
Lack of unified and up-to-date information about land transport at the national level. This can be considered as a constraint for the efficient and simple access to information by citizens. In addition, the absence of such information could hinder the development of mobile applications and electronic services on the transport sector.
Identification of commitment objectives/expected results
Providing accurate information in the land transportation field and opening up and dissemination of the public data on transport system in order to create applications and e-services related to this sector.
How will the commitment contribute to solve the public problem?
- Easy access to the transport information by citizens;
- Promoting the development of services and applications by the reuse
of data that will be opened and published following establishing this database
Relevance with OGP values
- Transparency and openness: this commitment will enable more information dissemination and improve the quality of the access to information process, in addition to the possibility of the re-use of this data to create new added value.
