Abstract

The Centrope region unites the territory near the common boundaries of Austria, the Czech Republic, Hungary, and the Slovak Republic. To enhance cross-border information exchange in municipal and regional planning, CentropeMAP was introduced in the year 2005 as a geoportal displaying datasets from the Centrope partner countries in a common interface and is subsequently extended in terms of content and functionality, thus allowing an easy view across the borders. CentropeMAP is also the basis for the interactive cross-border statistics information system CentropeSTATISTICS which allows statistic figures from the fields of demography, economy, and land useto be compared with each other, analysed and graphically displayed. CentropeSTATISTICS concentrates on data at municipality level, which is the major difference to other existing cross-border statistics portals which often present their data only on NUTS 3 or even NUTS 2 levels which is insufficient for a cross-border analysis on a small scale.
