Identifier DF1_5_MRail
Short name DF1_5_MRail
Dataset NoiseDirectiveDF1_5
Reference URL http://dd.eionet.europa.eu/datasets/latest/NoiseDirectiveDF1_5/tables/DF1_5_MRail
Name Major Railways
Short Description This dataset allows Member States to define the sections of Major Railways, their location, length and traffic.
Methodology for obtaining data European Parliament and Council Directive 2002/49/EC, relating to the assessment and management of environmental noise requires data and reports from Member States to be supplied to the European Commission.

In Data Flow 1 and 5, for Major Railways, Member States must report the general description of the Major Railways, their location, length and traffic.

This data specification details the table structure for Member States to supply this information. The table must be supplied with supporting xml metadata compliant with the current European Environment Agency, Dublin Core Metadata Element Set (http://cr.eionet.europa.eu/dcmes.jsp).

Alternatively the data may be returned as a geodataset in accordance with the current EEA GIS Guidelines (http://www.eionet.europa.eu/gis/docs/EEA_GISguide_...). The associated attribute table must comprise the field names detailed in this specification. The geodataset must be supplied with supporting xml metadata compliant with the current European Environment Agency, Metadata Standard for Geographic Information (The minimum specification is available at http://www.eionet.europa.eu/gis/nationaldeliveries...).
