Research seminar on digital plan data

Since 2006, all plans mentioned in the Danish planning law are registered in the digital plan database This includes all currently effective 34,000 local development plans as well as over 50,000 zoning designations from municipal plans. Besides a range of metadata and basic info on the plans content, the explict geographic extent of each plan element is available as geodata and can be downloaded. This opens up for new research perspectives, e.g. regarding the evaluation of plans and planning, comparison of planning practice as well as more critical discussion on what that data actually illustrates or how it influences planning.

On 27 June we will hold a little research seminar on digital plan data with Danish researches and practitioners as well as guests from Norway, where they have a similar plan register. The seminar takes place at the University of Copenhagen and is funded by the Centre of Strategic Urban Research.
