Work due 15 Dec 2015

  In order to be able to estimate and evaluate the potential environmental impact of the transport infrastructure development and the increase of built-up areas, the main improvements foreseen for this indicator are: a) Implementation of a reliable spatial database of linear transport structures over European countries corresponding to types previously used in statistical datasets. Regarding the statistics already used, complete the national transport infrastructure statistics for certain countries. b) Update by comparable spatial data on transport for all countries, namely length according to various infrastructure types. c) Compare the statistical results of built-up changes with the results obtained through the analysis of spatial data. d) Data collection and analysis at national level. Storage of historical data is needed to allow calculations over time, instead of momentary status descriptions only.
