A lot of highly detailed geospatial information (obtained by mobile mapping and spatial data processing) is available that can be used to describe the exact road parameters for simulation and modeling. A gap between the freely available geospatial information and the descriptive standards of the road is present that is used in driving/traffic simulation as well as the systems of test vehicles. The toolset of GIS (Geographic Information Systems) provides wide-ranging functionality for spatial

This paper describes a method for gathering and converting road-network information from OpenStreetMap to OpenDRIVE data format. Using a similar conversion tool, the scenario generation and synthesis of realistic road networks for driving simulator applications can be more convenient and faster.
