Geodata or geographic data is defined as data having an explicit or implicit association with a location relative to Earth. With many different areas of application, it can be used for risk assessment, mapping, management, planning and development of urban and rural areas. Geodata innovations offer several opportunities to make the mobility sector safer, more efficient and sustainable and some of these innovations will be presented in this workshop.

Showcased projects introduce a wide variety of innovations using geodata. Different applications of geographic information systems (GIS) are displayed demonstrating the potential for their use in infrastructure planning and maintenance. Invited speakers and interested parties will discuss challenges and opportunities of geodata use from their perspectives and experiences. Cross-border issues and needs will also be addressed.

You are very welcome to share your knowledge and ideas during the event.

We look forward to your participation!

About the online mFUND-Workshop series “Data Innovations for Smart Mobility in Europe”

Data has become an important driver in all areas of our modern society and its importance is increasing every day. Data is the basis for most digital innovations. It offers enormous potential for new business models and products.

In the transport sector, digital technologies and data are used on a large scale to increase efficiency, reliability and safety of services and infrastructure and economy. At the same time, data-based solutions contribute to reducing the use of resources and tackle climate change. Citizens can greatly benefit from data-based solutions, which can enable seamless multimodal traffic, increase safety and improve the mobility experience in all types of environments.

With the virtual conference “Open Data for Smart Mobility in Europe”, held under the auspices of the German EU Council Presidency on 17 November 2020, the Federal Ministry for Digital and Transport has initiated a European dialogue on examples for data innovations in the mobility field across Europe.

To continue this knowledge exchange and to facilitate new partnerships between European projects and actors, the BMDV mFUND programme has established a new online workshops series on Data Innovations for Smart Mobility. Six events on different transportation topics have taken place since the summer of 2021 and the series will continue in 2022.
