ESPON Database 2013 Phase II (2011-2014)
Multi Dimensional Database Design and Development (M4D)
Taking as starting point the achievements of the Project “ESPON Database 2013” (Phase I) and the results and discussions from the ongoing ESPON Project on “Territorial Indicators and Indices” (INTERCO), this project shall maintain, update, develop and further expand the ESPON 2013 Database.
In this framework, the main European activities carried out to promote data comparability and data quality, in particular the INSPIRE Directive and the GMES (Global Monitoring for Environment and Security) initiative will be taken into consideration.
In general, the ESPON 2013 Database shall supply different users (ESPON community and general public), including researchers, policy makers and stakeholders at regional and local level, with data, indicators and (visualisation) tools in the field of European territorial development and cohesion needed for policy formulation, application and monitoring at different geographical levels. The data managed by the project originates from European institutions such as EUROSTAT and EEA, and from all ESPON projects. By doing this, the ESPON 2013 Database shall contribute to better understanding of territorial structures, the current situation and past and future trends of different types of European territories in relation to the various geographical contexts (from local to global) and within a large variety of themes.
