Spatial Information Systems

European Transport Networks (1991- 2003)

The GIS group of IRPUD has over the years developed a comprehensive spatial database of European transport networks comprising road, rail and inland waterway networks and airports in 38 European countries (all countries of the European Union as well as Switzerland, Norway, Iceland, Poland, the Czech Republic, Slovakia, Albania, Rumania, Bulgaria, the European part of Turkey, former Yugoslavia and the countries of the European part of the former USSR). The database contains all motorways, 3 national roads and important secondary roads, all rail lines, inland waterways and ports and all international and important domestic and regional airports. It also contains the trans-European networks as specified in Decision 1692/96/EC of the European Parliament, the so-called TINA networks ('Transport Infrastructure Needs Assessment') for the 12 candidate countries as well as the Helsinki corridors for the remaining east European countries. In addition it contains the boundaries of statistical regions according to the 'Nomenclature d'unités territoriales statistiques' (NUTS) of the Statistical Office of the European Union (Eurostat) as well as all European cities with a population of more than 50,000.
