The task of digitizing the entire traffic infrastructure on a digital map for the construction and maintenance of traffic works, management traffic planning, and sharing for relevant agencies to exploit and use has been stated in the digital transformation project of the transportation sector of Da Nang city. But, in the truth, in the management and storage of information and data at the Department of Transport and its units in Da Nang city, it is still done relatively manually and sporadically. Currently, the majority of them still utilize paper or digitized records but still save them separately on personal computers for managing and storing information regarding infrastructure, modes of transportation. There are still inconsistencies and delays in the deployment of information reporting, management information, digitization, and the availability of exploitation channels. When it is necessary to handle and review the information of road transport vehicles, including registration information, vehicle registration, and information about traffic safety infractions, the program does not have connection or data sharing capabilities. The specificity of the data of each transport infrastructure project is that the data is very large, and has many different formats, the information is updated regularly every year according to the maintenance, renovation, and upgrading process, etc. Traditional storage and representation of data, like how database management systems and management software are used, will not meet the demand. In this paper, we propose a solution to build a centralized specialized database, have a specific organizational plan according to the specific characteristics of the industry, and be able to integrate data from specialized applications to connect and unify data between authorities.
