Abstract

The Centrope region is situated at the mutual borders of Austria, the Czech Republic, Hungary, and Slovakia. Its aim is to foster cultural, ecologic and economic development in an area that had to suffer enormous disadvantages during the decades of existence of the Iron Curtain and is now ready to catch up. To help planners and stakeholders to get an overview of the Centrope region, the geoportal CentropeMAP went online in 2005 and was soon extended by a cross-border statistics database which is linked to the map view. This powerful tool allows you to convert statistic data into easily legible thematic maps and various types of charts on the fly. CentropeMAP is an online geoportal, which means it collects web map services (WMS) from all parts of the Centrope Region and presents all these services to the user compiled into one single map. CentropeMAP emphasises on datasets that are of interest for spatial planning and similar professions, comprising multiple data layers from the fields of biota, boundaries, elevation, imagery/base maps, inland waters, planning/cadastre, structure, and transportation. Planners and stakeholders receive a great help from maps. Also, statistic data is important to analyse a region. So why not combine maps and statistics and create a combined view of statistic data directly in a map? CentropeSTATISTICS joins data from the regions Vysocina, Jihomoravsky, Bratislavsky, Trnavsky, Györ-Moson-Sopron, Burgenland, Lower Austria, and Vienna and features readymade thematic maps as well as an expert mode which gives full access to the whole Centrope cross-border statistics database. Note that you can also download these data and, for example, use it in a spreadsheet. Almost all datasets are collected in a time series so that the development of the region can be explored in yearly steps since 2001; the data range comprises various fields like population statistics, population development and projection as well as land use, educational statistics, tourism or migration.
