Australian Transportation Data Action Network (ATDAN)

The Australian Transportation Data Action Network (ATDAN) is an advisory and action group responsible for providing leadership in transportation data. The group is chaired by the Australian Bureau of Statistics (ABS) and comprises representatives from the Bureau of Infrastructure, Transport and Regional Economics (BITRE), National Transport Commission (NTC) and jurisdictional transport agencies. ATDAN meets at least twice yearly.

ATDAN provides advice to the Transport and Infrastructure Senior Officers Committee (TISOC) and the Standing Committee on Transport and Infrastructure (SCOTI) on decisions regarding strategic transportation data issues. The group also undertakes projects to improve transportation data collection, and develops and promotes the use of metadata standards and frameworks.

The objectives of ATDAN are to:

    • Provide leadership in national transportation data;
    • Implement policy decisions regarding transportation data;
    • Support and ensure visibility of national transportation data;
    • Facilitate harmonisation of national transportation data; and
    • Coordinate and facilitate the implementation of the ABS Data Quality Framework as endorsed by the Council of Australian Governments and transport ministers.
