Population Distribution GML example: population in 1km x 1km grid (2011), Poland

This is an example of a GML file compliant with the PD Technical Guidelines. The dataset contains population distribution data referring to a sector of a statistical grid (1 km x 1 km).

See also this file: Statistical Units GML example: Statistical Grid, Poland

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.

According to the PD Technical Guidelines, the GML does not contain geometries for statistical values, only an identifier connecting the value to a corresponding unit in the Statistical Units dataset (link above).

There is however one geometry attribute in this GML: areaOfDissemination. This is a single polygon covering the whole area of dissemination. In this case it is the geometry of the 60 km x 100 km sector.

Other parts of this dataset as well as other datasets are available from this ATOM feed:
