Web links for ITS/Telematics standards *** IN PROGRESS ***
Following are links to standards focusing on traffic data delivery, intercommunication, and management.

ITS National Architecture
The ITS National Architecture is a framework for design and integration of ITS services, spanning a wide area of functionality. It is meant as a higher level complement to some of the more focused standards including the TMDD, ATIS, and other standards.

TMDD (Traffic Management Data Dictionary):
The TMDD is geared towards traffic management systems and provides a standardized way to provide traffic information and details including those relevant to public agencies managing traffic.

RDS-TMC specifies traffic information encoding which is intended for FM data broadcast. It is European based and is being used for an increasing number of North American Telematics systems.

ITIS stands for Intelligent Transportation Information Interchange Systems. It includes an incident/event description list based on and enhanced from RDS-TMC event codes.

ATIS (Advanced Traveler Information Systems):
SAE (Society of Automotive Engineers) have a standard (SAE J2353) which blueprints data structures for traveler information messaging and delivery. It includes everything from user data to traffic data to weather data to parking data and more. Another standard describes location referencing (SAE J1746). These are pay for download.
There is also an effort underway to develop an XML DTD for ATIS data based on SAE J2353.
