Public authorities that are responsible UVARs, which are most often cities, regions or ministries, or potentially private companies that act on behalf of the city.

Digitisation Software providers may use the open source UVARBox Tool software or the underlying DATEX-II profile to enable cities to digitise their UVARs from within their software. Feel free to contact responsible project partners.


The tool makes it easier for cities, regions and ministries to digitise UVARs to enable them to be put into navigation tools is now available for cities, together with a video and manual to support its use. This is really important:

    1. More and more navigation service providers are asking cities for data; this tool enables cities to give the data once in a single format, rather than several times in different formats.
    2. If your UVAR is in the navigation tools that drivers use, there will be higher compliance rates and fewer complaints
    3. The UVARBox tool makes this process easy, with support for cities and regions from Country Coaches
    4. Digitising your UVAR is a win-win-win for your city and those wanting to drive into it.
