More Than Maps: Population & businesses data
The Centre of Registers, Lithuania continues to implement its obligation to open more information to the public collected and stored in the registers and information systems. More data about population and businesses of the country is now available on the regional geoinformational map – REGIA, which is created and further developed by the Centre of Registers.
In addition to the information on real properties, Address Register objects or engineering networks, the REGIA map has started publishing statistics available at the Centre of Registers. Now the data about largest legal entities, in terms of sales revenue and net profit, and information of the Population Register on the number of persons who have declared their place of residence in a specific municipality, is available.
“Our goal is to achieve that the REGIA map gradually becomes a platform for open geo-referenced data, where not only the data processed in the registers or information systems of the Centre of Registers but also relevant information from other state or municipal institutions is published. This time we supplemented the map with information from the Register of Legal Entities and the Population Register. In the future, we intend to add other data that is important to the public and present it in a convenient way,” says Service Management Director Diana Vilytė.
The REGIA map displays legal entities according to their registered office address. Users click on a concrete company to see legal entity‘s name, code, registered office address, average number of employees. Users can also see sales revenue or net profit ratio, and refine data in order to find out TOP10 companies with the best ratios in a selected municipality.
By selecting the layer ‘number of persons who have declared their place of residence’, the REGIA map will display municipalities in different colours according to the number of persons who have declared their place of residence. By clicking on a specific municipality, users will find exact number of those who have declared their place of residence in that municipality, statistics by gender and age groups.
REGIA is a user-friendly information exchange platform. To facilitate re-use of data, all information can be downloaded in a single Excel spreadsheet.
REGIA map, created by the Centre of Registers, is a convenient tool specially developed for municipalities, their residents, officials and businesses operating therein. The aim of REGIA is to create convenient conditions for decision-making based on geographical location and to facilitate the exchange of information.
Most of the client-relevant information published on the REGIA map is linked to real property and accurate data stored by the Centre of Registers: boundaries of land parcels, real property value zones, average and taxable market values, and information on the Address Register objects. In addition to the data mentioned above, information from other institutions is available on the map too, such as engineering networks and data published by the National Land Service, etc.
Considering user needs, the REGIA map intends to offer more data from other institutions, such as data available from the companies operating water, sewage, heating or telecommunications networks.
