Palabras clave:Carreteras, SICA, Junta de Andalucia, LiDAR, INSPIRE, OGC, MAPEA, Open Source, interoperabilidad
The entry into force of Law 8/2001 of July 12, on Roads of Andalusia,
provides the Autonomous Community of Andalusia with
its own legislative and regulatory framework for the exercise of
its exclusive competence in terms of roads, and establishes in its
article 52 the obligation of the Andalusian Administration to have
a Road Information System.
This system, SICA, integrates all the basic data of the Road Network
of Andalusia necessary for the development and application of
the sectoral policy in this matter, and requires the continuous
and systematic update and maintenance of its information due
to the dynamism of the Road Network of Andalusia.
Since 2007, SICA is addressing an ambitious optimization process,
with a clear intention of cross-cutting service within the Andalusian
Regional Government and technological innovation, both
in the capture of physical and geometric characteristics of the
road public domain, as in the applications and systems that serve
as support for the decision-making and the exploitation of this
public domain, and in the information to users. All this makes SICA
the most ambitious Road Information System in Spain.
