Statistics Committee in Azerbaijan to embrace GIS

Baku, Azerbaijan: The State Statistics Committee (SSC) of Azerbaijan is considering introducing an interactive response system, TAIEX, for obtaining statistical data using GIS. TAIEX expert Alexander Kotsev confirmed that the system will be introduced in the State Statistics Committee this year.

“TAIEX is an instrument of technical assistance and information exchange of the European Commission. This tool provides technical assistance for both former EU candidate countries and the new candidate countries for accession to the Union. Recently TAIEX coverage was extended to countries of the European Neighborhood Programme (ENP),” he emphasised.

According to Kotsev, the system will provide interactive statistical information from the regions of the country. Currently, all the necessary statistical information from the regions has been added to the system.

“The database can be accessed through a browser. The browser works like an electronic map, where by a person can get the necessary statistical information about a particular region by just clicking on it,” he noted.
