The National Transport Survey and DB Construction Project is executed by splitting it into sectors, including passenger survey and analysis, freight survey and analysis, transport network survey and implementation, national transport statistics implementation, DB system management and operation, and project management. ##3D_LAYER##Major detailed projects in each sector are summarized in the following table.##3D_TEXT: https://www.ktdb.go.kr/eng/contents.do?key=261 (Video clip for introducing Korea Transport Database Project)##3D_LAYER_END##

In general, national transport DB can be utilized for a variety of project sectors by relating it to the purpose of the projects. It can be used as preliminary data for effective establishment and execution of transport-related policy and plans of central government and municipal governments. It can also be used for various analysis in conducting transport-related research by industry, academia and research institutes. IT can also be propagated to general public via various GIS-T information, statistics data, internet, publications and so forth, thereby enhancing the information accessibility of general public so that they can always procure and utilize the necessary data.
In the transport sector in particular, it is possible to save part of service project cost when ordering projects such as national backbone transport network plan, medium-term transport infrastructure investment plan, validity of transport infrastructure projects, various fundamental plans in transport sector and so forth. By utilizing transport DB implemented via this project, it is possible to cut down budget for administrative tasks including transport survey and analysis costs, which used to represent majority of the service costs of the individual projects. In addition, it becomes possible to establish effective transport policy and plans for the reduction of transport congestion fee and national distribution fee by enhancing the reliability of survey data through standardization of transport survey techniques and survey tables.
The national transport DB is used as fundamental data for effective establishment and execution of transport policy and plans in central institutions and local governments. It started external service for public utilization in April 2001, and it is used as a variety of analysis data for industry and academia as well as government. Its geographic information and a variety of transport statistics data are also accessible by general citizens via internet.
The transport DB was used as two forms in the past: online provision through internet and detailed analysis data direct provision. However, in order to reduce civil complaints by the complication of application and acceptance process for detailed analysis data use and extend the share use range of transport DB, the data provision system (2009 project) is currently improved and managed on the project website so as to fulfill the direct data application and reception. Moreover, each sector’s implemented project result DB such as transport statistics and literature data, transport survey result’s analysis study is presented through the website, and online basic analysis function is realized so as to help user’s use convenience.
National transport DB’s largest demand place is the evaluation field considering transport facility investment plan. National transport DB is utilized in a lot of transport facility investment evaluation and validity analysis, and besides, national transport DB is extending its use place into various fields. It presents extensive use fields such as public transport management plan, accident management system, wildlife animal habitat space establishing study, and so on.
