The Ministry of Transportation and Communications held the Transportation Technology Industry Forum on the 17th, hoping to integrate data and industry. Minister of the Ministry of Transportation and Communications, Lin Chia-lung, said that the Ministry of Transportation and Communications has the largest traffic information related to people's lives, and these Open Data can be standardized and intelligently applied.
The Ministry of Transportation and Communications said that in the past four years, the public transport management agencies and the domestic technology system integration vendors have jointly researched and established the cross-transportation public transport travel data standards, and used the latest cloud technology to establish the“Public Transport Data eXchange (PTX)”platform. The historical and real-time data closely related to people's lives, such as roads, orbits, aviation, shipping, sightseeing, meteorology and air quality, are systematically integrated with the international four-star open data standard format. It has successfully promoted more than 500 value-added operators in Taiwan and abroad to join the transportation data service industry.
The Ministry of Transportation and Communications said that the “Traffic Data eXchange Platform (TDX)” has been further expanded with the concept of “traffic data and data market”. In addition to public transport travel information, it also further integrates real-time traffic information, parking data and public transport tickets and other information to create a new blueprint for the traversal of all-round transportation data with one-stop service.
