ABSTRACT:
This article explores developments in the transport sector where the imperative for technical co-ordination is now high as a consequence of the technologising of the transport ecotr. The technologising of the transport sector has been intricately connected with the netter management of physical space and communciations in the interts of economic growth. Within Europe, this technolgising and the dvelopment of European level programmes of demand management in the transport secotr provide a laboratory in which the relationships between metagovernance and extensive patters of data exchange between locatlisites and regions and states are increasingly visible. In this European pattern, it is also the case that lower tier administrations and communities have new opportuntities to extend their particicpation in what were previously the policy areas of big government alone. In the United States, the advent of new information communication technologies in a large federal governance structure has accommodated the development and refinement of metadata protocols and organisation. Metadata protocols not only extend the range of government but also enable non-governmental agencies to readily access complex data which were previously beyond the access capabilities of the general community. The article ends with a review of the prosepcts of the development of community information systems and outlines the tensions between the enlargement of big government and the growth in the extended participation of lower tiers, both of which potentials are preesnt in the metadata scenario
