The President of the Central Statistical Office is the leading body for two spatial data themes from Annex III to the INSPIRE Directive:

  • statistical units,
  • population distribution [demography].

In order to fulfil the requirements of the INSPIRE Directive the following datasets have been registered in the national register of spatial datasets and services:

Following INSPIRE services are available in the Geostatistics Portal:

Discovery service – a CSW catalogue service publishing metadata for spatial datasets and services available in the Geostatistics Portal: http://geo.stat.gov.pl/soapServices/CSWStartup?service=CSW&request=GetCapabilities

View services – published as WMS (Web Map Service):

For the theme statistical units:

For the theme population distribution (demography):

View services are exposed to the software Java 8, (https protocol, a high level of security). Therefore it is not technically possible to read them on applications exposed using Java 7.

Download Services – a download service with ATOM profile allowing the download of pre-defined spatial data sets (guidelines for using the download services are available at the bottom of this webpage):

For the theme statistical units the download service is available at http://geo.stat.gov.pl//atom_web-0.1.0/atom/SU 

Following datasets are published within the service:

GRID – a statistical grid dividing Poland into 1km x 1km cells

BREC – boundaries of statistical regions and census enumeration areas

NTS – boundaries of NTS statistical units

Localities for statistical purposes 2011 – this dataset is a result of harmonizing census enumeration area boundaries (BREC) with descriptive data from the locality catalogue (SIMC). Objects that represent locality areas have been created as aggregations of census enumeration areas. The aggregation was based on assigning census enumeration area identifiers (BREC) to locality identifiers (SIMC). The resulting dataset does not represent all localities from the SIMC catalogue, only those to which census enumeration areas have been assigned.

Datasets published in GML are harmonized and compliant with the final (3.0) version of the statistical units data specification.

For the theme population distribution [demography] at http://geo.stat.gov.pl//atom_web-0.1.0/atom/PD  following data sets are available:

GRID – total population in a 1km x 1km grid

BREC – total population in statistical regions and census enumeration areas

NTS – demographic data for NTS statistical units:

  • total population,
  • classifications by:
    • sex,
    • 5-year age groups,
    • economic age groups.

Datasets published in GML are harmonized and compliant with the final (3.0) version of the population distribution (demography) data specification.

Guidelines for using the download services:

Datasets for statistical units and population distribution (demography) data themes are published in ATOM predefined dataset download services. Datasets can be accessed via these services (URLs available in the "INSPIRE" section of this website). URLs for files that are parts of each dataset are available in the metadata. To access dataset metadata you have to use the metadata search tool in the Geostatistics Portal (Tools -> Search -> Metadata search):

Advanced metadata search allows specifying the resource type („Data set" has to be chosen):

Left click on one of the datasets from the result list will open the metadata element:

On the „Distribution" tab of the metadata element, URLs to files that are part of the datasets can be found:
