2 Prehistory of Kiwi format (1) Feb 1992 : ISO/TC204/WG3 started May 1995 : SWG3.2 meeting (Sydney conference) had been held. –The discussion about the standardization of disk format had been started. –This association was named ‘Kiwi’ Sep 1996 : Kiwi committee started 17 companies related to car navigation systems participated. The study of the Kiwi format had been started. Jan 1997 : Kiwi Ver1.0 had been completed

4 Conventional map database structure Database structure which depends on the requirement of the Application Program The real world Map display Data Positional reference Data Route planning Data Refer to data. (1) Application(1) (map display) Refer to data. (2) Application(2) (positional calculation) Refer to data. (n) Application(n) (recommended route planning) System control program
5 Data base structure of Kiwi format The real world is described by information related to the shape of the object, the attribute, and the connection (phase) etc. The real world Shape dataAttribute data Application(1) Common data reference program Application(2)Application(n) Standard data format for data exchange Relation of connection
6 Feature of Kiwi data format Description of the real world –It describes three dimensional information –It has capability of dealing with the time base data Compression of data size –It describes road data by multi link expression Faster data reference –It divides the space by rectangle and by arbitrary sized area. –It has layered structure
7 Feature of Kiwi format Retention of extendibility –It gives the extendibility to basic data. –It manages information by the number and the data size of the element. –Controlls expantion area with the bit flags. Extention of applied field –It has four-dimensional data structure of general Geographical Information System
8 Basic function realized with Kiwi format Map display Location Route planning Route guidance Index Search –Address search –POI search
9 Kiwi-W consortium Aims at the achievement of the inter-operability of the map disks with the use of Kiwi-W format. Defines necessary regulations, and discloses official information. Supports practical use. Accelerates the spread of Navigation systems in each country by defining the standard for the world. Nonprofit organization
10 Activity We issue and disclose the format specifications and the operation regulations to use the Kiwi-W disk. We certificate and the manage the produced Kiwi-W disk.
