Map of the month November 2021: All Saint's Day
November 1st is All Saint’s Day. Many people go to the cemetery around this day to remember their deceased family members and friends. Therefore, we take a look at the change of death rates in the Centrope region, comparing the change in deaths per 1,000 inhabitants. The map shows a comparison of 2014 and 2019, and we also analysed 2009–2019 as well as 2004–2019. All results have similar outputs, and as you can see on the map (PDF, 1 MB), there is obviously no spatial correlation with the change in death rates over time. The frequency distribution allows to conclude that there were more deaths per 1000 inhabitants in younger years, which seems conclusive in view of the progressive ageing of society. The map for 2014–2019 is also available through our geoportal map.centropemap.org.
CentropeMAP/STATISTICS is a cross-border information system and free geoportal of the Austrian Planning Association East (PGO) which gives planners, decision makers, researchers, teachers, students and everyone else interested a better overview of the Centrope region.
CentropeMAP is a geoportal connecting the region by collecting web map services from the partner countries. The services are brought together in a single map viewer and allow the user to experience a cross-border working area with dozens of data layers dealing with all topics which could be of interest for regional planners and similar professions. Layers are coming from the fields of biota, boundaries, elevation, imagery/base maps, inland waters, planning/cadastre, structure, and transportation.
CentropeSTATISTICS is the only available free web tool to visualise cross-border statistical data in its own connected geoportal allowing the user to influence the way of visualisation in multiple ways in the Centrope region. CentropeSTATISTICS can not only create maps, it also serves charts which are interactively created from the data in the cross-border database. For the Czech Republic, CentropeSTATISTICS does not only cover the Centrope county Jihomoravský, but also features data from the counties Vysočina and Jihočesky which are also adjacent or close to the Austrian border.
The CentropeMAP newsletter aims to inform members of state administration and statistical offices as well as all interested visitors about the capabilities of CentropeMAP and CentropeSTATISTICS with news from the statistical offices of the partner countries. It also distributes information regarding geodata in the CentropeMAP geoportal.
