Data Processing and Data use
First step of Data processing represents Data input into central Database through software applications operated directly in field during Data Collection or under office conditions at Road Databank Department. After that, there is a lot of processing needed to secure valid Data in forms suitable for further use.
Data of Central technical Register of Roads officially represent the sector of Transportation; Road Network Model is the unique vector Model of Road Network with a wide range of technical Data). Therefore the Data are used at all levels of state, regional and local Road Management and other state sectors (Ministry of Transport, Construction and regional Development of Slovak Republic, research Institutes, Road Agencies, state and regional transportation Agencies, Universities, Municipalities, Police Authorities, Department of Defence, etc.).
Various Forms of Data provision are used. Road Databank tries to fit the form of Data provision to customer needs. The forms as web map services or web feature services are preferred.
Very important issue is licensing of Data according to Authors Act. Data providing based on license agreement is generally free of charge.
There are a lot of application systems operated within Slovak Road Administration which directly use Data of Central technical Register of Roads – Pavement Management System, Bridge Management System, System for Determination of Abnormal Transport Routes, Traffic Engineering System, etc.
