Title plan4business
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).
