NavInfo took charge of the compilation of national standards, to propel the development of the intelligent driving industry.

 The other day, NavInfo took charge of the compilation of the GB/T35645-2017 Framework Data Exchange Format for Navigation Electronic Map and GB/T35640-2017 Data Model and Exchange Format for Public Transportation Navigation. Moreover, the other eight national standards for navigation maps taken charge by the company was put into formal implementation on July 1.

The ten national standards, jointly compiled by NavInfo, National Geomatics Center of China, Wuhan University and other enterprises, governmental agencies and colleges and universities, were released officially on December 29, 2017.

According to Jin Shuixiang - SVP of NavInfo, "This series of standards can play a role in standardization and guidance in the exchange format and data production of navigation geographic data, thus, laying a good foundation for shaping up the intelligent transportation, connected car, location-based services and other industries."
Along with the increasingly extensive application of automobile navigation and the rapid development of the navigation application industry, the industry has a more urgent demand for the standardization of navigation electronic map data.

As for the implemented national standards for navigation map, based on the rich experience in coding, maintaining and processing map navigation data, NavInfo abstracts, induces, sorts and stores the geographic information related to navigation in the relational database, stipulates the principles of geometric storage, attribute coding and relationship maintenance of navigation elements, and formulates the standards for the Framework Data Exchange Format for Navigation Electronic Map suitable for China"s national conditions, providing applicable solutions for the general data exchange specifications of the industry.

The public traffic field specifies the data model, element contents and exchange format of public traffic navigation. It supports the normalization and standardization of public traffic navigation services, reasonable arrangement of the public travel time and reduction of travel costs, to improve the public transportation willingness.
Furthermore, the other eight map standards taken charge by NavInfo cover navigation map update, interest points of geographic information, mobile phone map data specifications, indoor location information, etc.
Relying on the development of navigation map and centering on the top-level strategy "Intelligent Automobile Brain", NavInfo"s transformation to future intelligent driving has achieved initial success. The formulation of the national standards for navigation maps has a good reference for the standardization and commercialization of autonomous driving maps and other intelligent location product services.

Professor Li Bijun of Wuhan University LIESMARS who has participated in the drafting of the standard release expressed, the standard release helps to promote the sharing of electronic maps and perfection of service quality, to solve the problem of a large amount of repeated investment by government departments and map manufacturers due to resource closure, to further produce significant social and economic benefits. At the same time, it also has important guiding significance for the production and commercial use of the current and future unmanned driving and online automobile electronic map products.

As the host and participant in implementing the national standards, NavInfo expects the establishment of standards to create greater value for the industry and cooperative partners, to power the arrival of the autonomous driving era.
