About KTDB

Establishment of a ComprehensiveTransportation Information Infrastructure

Expected Effects

Use of KTDB for Various Sectors

  • Use as essential basic data in order to effectively establish and execute transport policies and plans of central government and local governments
  • Use as analysis data when carrying out transport studies in industrial, academic circles and laboratories
  • Quickly providing various GIS-T information and statistics to policymakers and the public through KTDB website, promotional events, and other media

Expectations and Ripple Effects from Transport-related Fields

Building a transport database contributes to knowledge and information projects, and its direct effects are difficult to quantify. However, it can reduce the service budget of the central government or local governments when placing orders for feasibility assessments of transport infrastructure investment projects, basic plans, etc. KTDB’s ripple effect can be classified into direct and indirect effects.

Expected Direct Effects

  • Financial savings in individual transport investigations by sharing of national transport investigations and transport databases
  • Building a foundation for dramatic reduction of traffic congestion costs and national distribution costs by establishing legitimate transport plans and policies
  • Financial savings in administrative work: Reduction of transport investigation costs and analysis costs of the central government and local governments when building roads, railways, subways, airports, and distribution industrial complexes, while also assessing feasibility of maritime and fishery projects and establishing basic plans
  • Providing investigation results and analyses required for establishment of transport measures during international events and other special periods of time
  • Improving credibility of investigation data by standardizing transport investigation methods and investigation tables

Expected Indirect Effects

  • Promotion of academic transport–related research by providing basic data
  • Establishment of GIS-based transport policies and plans, and introduction of analysis methods
  • Establishment of various transport information infrastructures for the information age by compiling GIS-based transport information
  • Enhancement of various analytical skills when establishing transport and city related policies
  • Ease to collect basic data when establishing comprehensive transport plans
  • Improve competitiveness of related industries and building knowledge base of policy data
  • Improve public accessibility to transport related information
