Plan4Business portal now online available
05.02.2014: The plan4business development team has designed and implemented the first operational implementation of the plan4business service platform. There will be two main implementations of the system.
One is for non-expert users enabling browsing the content, viewing the thematic compositions and predefined analysis and core pan-European datasets such as Urban Atlas and Corine Land Cover.
The other implementation is targeted at experts users who are additionally able to create own map compositions, perform own analysis, integrate spatial data into the common data model based on INSPIRE, download certain datasets or use the developed Application Programming Interface (API).
The prototypes are used mainly for testing purposes and no charges will apply. The portal for non-expert users is publicly available. Your feedback is appreciated. Please stay tuned and follow this website for further details.
Or look at the portal on http://www.whatstheplan.eu/.

08.04.2014: The plan4business team has designed and implemented the operational plan4business service platform that is available at http://www.whatstheplan.eu.
The feedback on the platform is going on. First results show a high percentage of satisfaction, but also very constructive remarks and questions related to the platform. Please continue to give your feedback through this questionnaire, so we can continuously update the quality of the services and data! Many thanks in advance.
A service platform for aggregation, processing and analysis of urban and regional planning data
|Aim||plan4business develops a platform serving multiple providers and thus offering users a full catalogue of planning data such as transport infrastructure, regional plans, urban plans and zoning plans. Such an aggregation platform will not just offer clients the data itself in integrated, harmonised and thus ready-to-use form, but will also provide rich analysis and visualisation services. Such services can be offered via different interfaces, such as an API and an interactive web frontend (WebGIS).|
