Statistical Units GML example: Statistical Grid, Poland

This is an example of a GML file compliant with the SU Technical Guidelines. The dataset contains a part of statistical grid from the area of Poland.

Grid resolution: 1km x 1km
Coordinate reference system: ETRS89-LAEA

To allow usage of the provided GML files, the grid for the area of Poland had to be divided into sections (otherwise the GML would be too large). The file uploaded here is one of the 60 km x 100 km sectors.

Other parts of this dataset as well as other datasets are available from this ATOM feed: https://geo.stat.gov.pl/atom_web-0.1.0/atom/SU

    I am just wondering about the choice of section size, 60 by 100 km. Any particular reason for this? Thought it might be easier with 100 by 100 when programming.

    We wanted to determine sectors feasible for both SU and PD (PD GML example will be uploaded today). We have done some testing and I believe the 100 x 100 km sector size was too large for the GML files to be processed efficiently. That's why we reduced one of the dimensions.
