Data planning & storage

1 – Integration of data sources

The data that builds-up our dashboard comes from different data sources. Therefore, the TMaaS team built integrators, taking into account the specifications of the individual sources. The integration of different data is very relevant as it facilitates the understanding of information coming from different data sources.

The data platform also needs to be well organised. Consequently, the data gathering and structure is flexible and data-sources can be added, removed or even modified when necessary.




2 – Normalisation and storage

Data from different systems and sources come together in the data platform. The data we use are transformed into EU/pragmatic standards used in the market, in order to ensure data interoperability.

In the platform, data are cleaned, harmonized and made consistent with each other. Data are brought together to a unique temporal and spatial framework and normalised.

The data will be stored so it can at least be real-time compared to the preferences of users and be displayed in real-time dashboards. The storage will also include user feedback, linked to the initial events or values that triggered the feedback.

3. TMaaS API’s

We’ve developed two TMaaS API’s – one that contains contains the open data from TMaaS and the proprietary data of the partners. This API access key can only be shared with parties who have come to an agreement with the TMaaS consortium. Without an agreement of the consortium it will not be possible to receive the proprietary data. For the open data, no agreement is necessary and the public TMaaS access key will be available. The two TMaaS APIs are  divided in 3 API’s handling one specific category of data, namely points of interests (POI), traffic events, and parking information.

What we do

Urban Innovative Actions

This project is co-financed by the European Regional and Development Fund through the Urban Innovative Actions Initiative.

Urban Innovative Actions is an Initiative of the European Union that provides urban areas throughout Europe with resources to test new and unproven solutions to address urban challenges.

Based on article 8 of ERDF, the Initiative has a total ERDF budget of EUR 372 million for 2014-2020.
