Projects in progress

The absolute fundamental development is the construction of the datamanagement and datatransfer system over the entire office network. Data will be managed on three levels. The central level will include compiled and generalised data from the entire area, as well as supplementary basemap data from national datasets, themes, e.g. environmental, economic, social etc. and metadata. National level distribution points will process and manage data compiled and generalised from individual countries. These will provide access to national level thematic maps. Level three consists of local offices covering areas analogous to NUTS4. They manage large scale data (cadastre, urban and settlement planning, communal networks, etc.).

Creation of Spatial Data Infrastructure

80 % of data used in administration is directly or indirectly spatial in nature, e. g. address, registration number, regulatory zones, neighbourhood, real estate properties, use of public areas, etc. The harmonised, cooperative utilisation of such data based on network connections and data exchange would increase the efficiency of managing environmental, social and economic issues.

The aim of EU's INSPIRE and GINIE initiatives and the currently evolving EU regulations is to expand unified and conscious management of geospatial data, systems and the technical, financial and administrative aspects of joining. The region in question has little insight about the results achieved by EU in the subject.

Tasks to achieve: survey of conditions, know-how distribution, technical specifications, GIS development.

Cadastre of Socially Inadequate Residences

The region contains numerous residences that do not meet certain social requirements. The map on the left shows the spatial distribution of gypsies, the most influenced ethnic group. Many border neighbouring settlements have been fighting for a long time with the problem of rehabilitation of impoverished districts, eliminate unhealthy residences, to help the housing of the poorest.

It is very important for local governments, as well as their associations and any other involved organisation to be able to access a precise, unbiased registry of areas requiring intervention, based on objectively devised definitions. Such a database would improve the settlements' ability to apply for subsidies and it would also help financing authorities because they could both rely on a system of criteria precisely defining areas worthy of financial support. Initiated by "IHLET" on July 3rd 2003, Head of the National Habitation Secretariat in the Prime Minister's Office Lászlóné Csabai and under-secretary of Slovakia's Ministry of Construction and Regional Affairs Árpád Hideghéty, began talks concerning harmonisation of planning and measures for the elimination of socially inadequate residences.

Environmental and Flood Protection System.

Flood and environmental Risks in the regionparticularly necessitate unified watershed management. This network building from the bottom up includes a unified environmental monitoring system able to satisfy special local requirements and tasks. The participants develop this system together, as equal partners, which will monitor the conditions in the watershed, provides timely warning and guidance for prevention. The most important feature of the system is the cross-border co-operation of local governments and their associations.

Economic Information System

Most of the region is economically declining or stagnant. The aimed system will provide commerce, investment and promotion related data as well as analysis. This will have a positive effect on the viability of counselling, market surveying in the area, especially in terms of increasing the efficiency of utilising tourism opportunities of the region.
