What is GEO RĪGA?
GEO RĪGA is a centralised publishing platform of geospatial data maintained in municipal structural units created by the Riga City Municipality; it serves the municipality to initiate a dialogue – data exchange with society, providing access to geospatial data about the administrative territory of Riga City to various societal groups, including residents, neighbourhood activists, investors and entrepreneurs, innovation creators and researchers, other state and municipality institutions.
What is the purpose?
The purpose of GEO RĪGA is to give an easy and simple access to the geospatial data held by the municipality – to view, combine and use the data for own needs. The availability of data that reflect the current situation in the city increases the transparency of the municipality work and allows you to receive data services easily and conveniently, supporting social and economic initiatives. In the GEO RĪGA thematic maps, it is possible to view the basic data of Riga in various combinations, including cadastral and address information, graphic parts of Riga territorial plans, information on the immovable property of the municipality and its capital companies, waste management in Riga and other data.
What the benefits are?
Provides remote and convenient access to the geospatial information held by the municipality; allows you to connect various geospatial information available on the portal without using intermediaries – licensed software or paid services; reduces the need for individuals to turn to institutions for information and advice; gradually, it will ensure effective communication and feedback, for example, for public consultation, survey, and similar cases, supporting the society’s desire to be informed and participate in the city’s development processes.
The GEO RĪGA team will gradually supplement the portal with new data layers and thematic maps, making GEO RĪGA the main geospatial data distribution channel of the municipality and providing users with more convenient access to geospatial data about Riga maintained by the municipality and other institutions.
