ONLINE PRESENTATION “CONNECTING LOCAL SELF-GOVERNMENT UNITS TO THE PHYSICAL PLANNING INFORMATION SYSTEM OF PRIMORJE-GORSKI KOTAR COUNTY”

In a virtual environment on Thursday 2nd July 2020, the Institute held a presentation titled “The connecting of local units of self-government to the physical planning information system of Primorje-Gorski Kotar County.”

The connection project has been running since 2017, and with it, municipalities and towns in the Primorje-Gorski Kotar County have been able to access contents and data within the physical planning information system of the PGC. At the presentation, users were introduced to the changes and news connected to the access to the system, in other words to the technical upgrades and the possibility of using an application called “Urbanistička identifikacija” (Urban Identification).

Those attending were greeted on behalf of the Institute by its director Adam Butigan, who highlighted how the connection project greatly facilitated the use of physical planning data for the municipalities and towns within the County’s area. “In this way, all the municipalities and towns that participate in the project have access to up-to-date and official data from the domain of physical planning, without the need of spending their own time and money on additional analyses.”

After this, the 30 or so registered users who attended the presentation watched short demonstrations about the use of the Urban Identification application and WMS/WMTS service in the best -known GIS tools.

In the end, a representative of the Town of Kastav presented examples of good practice and work in conjunction with which the Town of Kastav uses the physical planning data of the County’s physical planning information system.
