Abstract

Early efforts at standardisation in the creation of a European digital road map (EDRM) led to the release in 1988 of GDF 1.0, based on the needs of car navigation systems. This project aimed to broaden the basis of GDF by including the needs of other road data suppliers and users, and to test the consistency of the GDF design. These goals have been achieved, and GDF 2.0 was released in December 1991. The original intention to include the needs of public road authorities, in particular curvilinear attributes, has only been carried out in a very provisional form, due to the complexity of the subject.
