    Only if it works as well as they claim it does. I am a total skeptic when it comes to Japanese claims of anything. (Read my 1st post on this topic)

    It works quite well. So well in fact, that US groups have been studying the system. The Geospatial Information Technology Association (GITA), Common Ground Alliance (CGA) and our Federal Government through PHMSA have all been looking at Roadic.

    GITA created the GECCo program to provide a common standard for mapping systems to "talk" to one another for the purpose of creating a mapping repository such as Roadic.

    Read about it here:

    The Geospatial Information & Technology Association (GITA) has been increasingly active in establishing dialogs with other associations and groups involved with critical infrastructure protection (CIP). The primary obstacle of data sharing emerged as a focal point of an approach that evolved into the concept of a CIP pilot project. In response to a request from the U.S. Department of Homeland Security's Office of Geospatial Management, GITA established a CIP Task Force to create a framework for the pilot and generate a proposal.
