Project Goal

The subject of the project was the creation of the Statistical Geoportal as a new platform for sharing geographically oriented statistical data, analytical outputs, and services. The Statistical Geoportal was primarily built to visualize the results and disseminate geospatial data of the 2021 Population and Housing Census, but in the long term it is designed as an all-office portal for providing map services to users and other presentation systems of the Czech Statistical Office (CZSO) and for making selected statistical data available in map form.
In addition, the implementation of the Geoportal will completely fulfill the requirements of the INSPIRE directive (Infrastructure for Spatial Information in the European Community), including the implementation of links to the National and European Geoportal.

Business Problem Solved

During the development of the Statistical Geoportal, the following challenges/requirements for implementation were identified:
•the possibility of map visualization of any CZSO data with a spatial component or a link to territorial delimitation, as the Statistical Geoportal will be used not only for the presentation of census data, but also other types of data from other statistical domains.
•fulfillment of complex requirements for presentation and dissemination of geographically oriented statistical outputs (dynamic map presentations – cartograms / diagram maps, grid statistics, georeports enabling territorial aggregations of statistical data, tools for visualization of commuting flows, analytical visualizations, geospatial, catalog, viewing, and download services);
•compatibility with the existing application and technological environment of the CZSO and the use of the existing GIS infrastructure;
•modular and scalable infrastructure with the possibility of future development.
