Local self-government units filed as Registered users can use additional content via the web application “Urban identification” and an advanced model of use is enabled via the Web GIS service.

The advantage of this method of data distribution is that all users always have the latest version of the data at their disposal and that they are not limited by the applicative platform.

Urban identification is a web application that on the basis of selected spatial coverage (marking on a map, with a choice from the dropdown list cadastral of units, from the GML) produces results with a list of all of the spatial plans in that region, with associated georeferenced cartographic depictions, textual provisions and other spatial data and has the possibility of making a report document. Users of this application see data from the whole of the County. The application is supported by leading web browsers (Chrome, Edge, Firefox, Opera).

The Web GIS services enable the download of new content and the addition to the standard GIS desktop tools of the registered user or the embedding of existing Web GIS services of the Institute into the individual Web GIS solutions of the registered user. Through these services, it is possible to download content only for the region of the unit of local self-government of the user and not of the whole of the County.
