In the past, the absence of network compatibility has hindered the comparison, development and integration of network modelling tools. This paper proposes an open standard for defining transportation networks. The network is broken down to the lowest common-denominator level, and so network information necessary for any relevant traffic simulation or traffic management software tool can be represented. A standard database named UTIS (Urban Transport Information System) is described containing all the necessary network objects and their attributes and the structure of this database is explained. The paper demonstrates how a lowest common-denominator database can be constructed allowing all networks derived from it to be updated simultaneously.
