- The USRS is modeled after the ISO14825:2011 standard.
The working group, launched in April of 2017, is comprised of Federal, State, Local, and Private organizations. Since its inception, the WG has defined requirements the specification should meet, cataloged attributes necessary to fulfill a number of use cases specific to U.S. road management, and considered conceptual, and existing, road models. In the following months, the WG will draw from I.S.O. Standard 14825, Intelligent Transport Systems – Geographic Data Files, to define a base specification, which will model location, identification, and function. As the model matures, and needs are prioritized, the base model will be extended to accommodate other missions such as networking and linear referencing. The WG will also address the pressing need to build consensus among the greater geospatial-transportation community in the coming months. Its support is integral to the specifications success.
