Tables or maps? Or a combination of them? What data is best for planning the development of territories?
The information on the map allows us to understand how difficult it is for people to get from home to important services, how and by whom hromadas lands are used, and how rivers will behave during floods. The data on the maps give the planner an idea of the nature of the territory, explain how the terrain affects the formation of settlements, allow to see the most valuable areas, and make the right decisions about their construction or preservation in the natural state.
On-site mobility planning is inextricably linked to map data. From where, where, how, and in what quantities people move—the answers to these questions are almost impossible to get without a comprehensive spatial database and the use of GIS tools.
How to plan the development of hromadas territories and mobility systems with the help of GIS data will be discussed within the CANactions School Online Talk, as well as explored in detail within CANactions School educational program SPACES.
Spatial Planning for Accessibility, Cooperation and Economic Sustainability (SPACES) Program focuses on the application of European inter-municipal cooperation practices and subregional spatial planning tools to a group of real-life functioning formed territorial communities—amalgamated hromadas. The SPACES program works with a group of neighboring Ukrainian amalgamated hromadas and focuses on coordinating their joint actions to increase the accessibility of services and economic growth of the territories.
