ESPON project 4.1 Data Navigator


Project duration: 2002

The project 4.1 "Data Navigator" of the ESPON 2006 Programme was a sub-area to prepare and support research and the scientific networking process. In this project, the availability of data relevant for the ESPON process was determined. The Data Navigator gives an overview of data sources, their definition and sourcing possibilities.

For this purpose, national contributions were compiled for every participating state of the ESPON Programme 2006.

The Federal Office for Building and Regional Planning (BBR) was involved in this project in two ways. On the one hand, it drew up the national contribution for Germany including the implementation of the national survey. On the other hand, the BBR was responsible for the final coordination and compilation of the Data Navigator Manual.
