SPESSARTregional: Development of a Regional Data Base (2016-2017)

The regional association Regionalverband SPESSARTregional has participated in the action programme Regional Services of General Interest of the Federal Ministry of Transport and Digital Infrastructure as one of 21 model regions. During the development of the regional strategy and development concepts the value of specific regional data, analyses and scenarios was recognised by municipalities, agencies and institutions as a fundamental precondition for successfully coping with demographic change. In the project the information bases first implemented in the action programme, such as small-scale assessment of population development, locations of services of general interest, mobility supply and accessibility of facilities and accessibility scenarios, were updated by S&W and complemented by new aspects, such as touristic destinations and importance of refugee immigration.
