VEDS Schema 3.1

The Vehicular Emergency Data Set (VEDS) provides critical data elements and the schema set needed to facilitate an efficient emergency response to vehicular emergency incidents. It uses XML and conforms to the National Information Exchange Model (NIEM) as a common data exchange format to provide a consistent method of data exchange. The intent is to establish a uniform set for the transmissions and collection of Advanced Automatic Collision Notification (AACN) data for telematics service providers and recipient agencies including emergency communications centers, emergency responders and medical facilities providing trauma level patient care.
