With the interactive online GIS application Regiomonitor Amsterdam it is easy to visually and statistically analyse time-series of spatial cluster maps of urban issues in the Amsterdam region. Maps can be created showing micro-scale areas (smaller than traditional administrative wards or districts) with high unemployment rates, citizens of certain age groups or ethnic backgrounds, social housing, high property value of houses and more. Since data is available from the year 2000 onwards, spatial dynamics in the demographic and socio-economic situation in the region can be monitored in an accurate way.
The application will be of use for researchers, students and policymakers and can be accessed from www.regiomonitor.nl. GIS-knowledge is not necessary. Please note that the monitor is in Dutch.
The application is developed by Urban Geography (Department of Human Geography, Planning and International Development Studies) of the University of Amsterdam and I-Mapping in cooperation with 7 municipalities: Amsterdam, Amstelveen, Almere, Haarlem, Haarlemmermeer, Purmerend and Zaanstad.
