The ESPON Database Portal proposes more than sixty resources to be downloaded from the "Resources" menu item. These resources are organized by categories:
Map Kits: ESPON Map Kits for GIS Experts.
Data tools: useful tools for ESPON projects dealing with data (OLAP Cube, R programs, ...) .
Technical documents: the technical documents provided by M4D and ESPON partners.
Territorial data: territorial data that are not yet integrated into the database, but that can be accessed via the resources page (local data, urban data, world data, grid data, historical data). These resources will be progressively integrated into the database in the future (more precisely, when the nomenclature will be suported by the database).
Documents of interest: external reports or links relative to works made outside of the ESPON community.
Each resource may propose a Data File, a Doc File and/or an URL to an external Web site. Downloading rights of the resources data and/or doc files depend on their access rules:
PUBLIC: no restriction.
RESTRICTED: the user must own a registered account on the ESPON Database Portal and be logged-in.
PRIVATE: the file exists but can not be downloaded. The access
is managed by the ESPON Coordination Unit, please send an email to
<[email protected]> to access the file.
As shown in Figure 4.2, the access rule to files is represented by:
the "download" icon for the cases "
public access", or "
restricted + logged-in user";
the "locked" icon for the cases "
restricted + not logged-in user", or "
