Abstract: This paper presents an overview and analysis of research and development on Intelligent Transport Systems (ITS) in Hong Kong from a Geographic Information Systems (GIS) perspective. First, an outline of ITS development in Hong Kong is given, together with a summary of the application areas, development framework and development issues of ITS for Hong Kong. It then briefly describes the technology of GIS and summarizes the functions of GIS that can be applied to ITS. A review of the applications and development of GIS in Hong Kong then follows. In the later half of the paper, GIS related research and development in Hong Kong are indicated by several examples in the selected areas, including a GIS data model, a mobile GIS, an Internet GIS, map matching-based navigation and integration with transport census data. These examples illustrate the role of GIS in the development and application of ITS in Hong Kong. Finally, the paper concludes with a depiction of the future outlook of GIS development for ITS, where the GIS spatial data standards for ITS are indicated as being one of the major issues.
