RIMAP - ESPON Online Mapping Tool
The project “ESPON Online Mapping Tool” aims at providing access to and enabling using the ESPON knowledge base in an easy and highly digestible manner. This will be done by giving people the possibility to produce, visualise, analyse and download maps and diagrams of data and indicators that are directly coming from the ESPON 2013 Database.
With developing a tool to visualise and analyse ESPON data and indicators in maps and diagrams it should fill the gap between disseminating data in tables (by the ESPON Database) and disseminating data in fixed maps (by the ESPON Online MapFinder and ESPON project reports).
In achieving the general objectives described above the following main domains will be considered:
- Data storage
- Data visualisation
- Data analysis
- User interface
- User support
- Web application
Scientific support to policy development
The ESPON Online Mapping Tool will be a highly interactive mapping tool available via the Internet where users can select, combine and overlay indicators from the ESPON database, choose the geography, make a map, diagram or even animations based on indicator time series.
The Online Mapping Tool will be at the disposal of policy makers and practitioners at all administrative levels, but also of the general public, including researchers and university students. With that the tool contributes to the use of ESPON data and information and the consolidation of a European research field on territorial development and cohesion.
