First Czech municipal geoportal now in English

Prague, Czech Republic: The City Development Authority Prague, Czech Republic, launched an English- version of its geoportal. It is the first municipal geoportal in the country. It is accessible at https://www.geoportalpraha.cz/en/main.

There are a number of online applications available on the portal. They are from the Prague Land-Use Plan and relation regulations. The apps aim to simplify digital map data utilisation of the city of Prague for non-Czech speakers as well as to help orient international specialists with regards to land-use possibilities and restrictions in Prague.

It includes links to tourist maps, current land-use plans, a land-price map, a digital map of Prague and an Atlas of Prague’s environment — however, once navigating to a number of these specific features, the menu reverts to Czech, requiring another click on the Union Jack icon.

The Atlas of the Prague’s Environment, meanwhile, brings together all major sources of cartographic information about the environment in the City. It includes sections on air, landscape, water, noise and waste.

The geoportal is the main gateway to information about the Czech capital’s geographical data and the development of the city’s geographical information system. It complies with the EU Directive on the administration of spatial data (INSPIRE). For the purposes of the INSPIRE directive, this geoportal is the official geoportal of the City of Prague as a mandated organization.
