Grids at different resolutions (1x1 km, 10x10 km, etc.) that express the UTM coordinates of Catalonia (ETRS89 zone 31 North) according to the Military Grid Reference System (MGRS).
Geographical base at 1:5,000 scale which shows, for each of the municipal boundary lines, the status of the process of elaboration, approval and completion of each line of the municipal boundary for the execution of the Municipal Map of Catalonia (Decree 244/2007, of 6 November). The Municipal Map (MM) is the set of lines that make up the municipal boundary, regardless of the number of sections. The current municipal boundaries come from the replan made from the delimitation document of the early twentieth century, when they were first set. The project of the MM that are carrying out the Directorate General of Local Administration (DGAL) and the Cartographic and Geologic Institute of Catalonia (ICGC), facilitates to the city councils the procedure to modify the line of boundary and adapt it, if necessary, to the current reality of the territory, generating a new municipal line that once approved by the Plenary Sessions of the city councils and published in the DOGC remains as a line of current delimitation. The municipal delimitation is dynamic due to its link with the territorial changes, but today it is more so because it is subject to the evolution of the elaboration of the MM. The base is updated periodically based on the sessions of the Territorial Delimitation Commission, which take place three times a year.
Location of alarms to warn the population if there is a chemical risk in the case of an accident in premises nearby.
The XDDE provides information on the identification, location and status of the set of geographic information Network for the Detection of atmospheric Electric Discharges v1.0 (XDDE) owned by the Meteorological Service of Catalonia. The system allows the real-time detection of storms, as well as the very short-term forecast of their trajectory. The XDDE consists of four remote stations and a central processing system located at the SMC headquarters. The stations are located in Begues (el Baix Llobregat), Castellnou de Seana (el Pla d’Urgell), Muntanyola (Osona) and Amposta (el Montsià). The arrangement of the detectors is designed to provide good coverage throughout Catalonia, with an error in the location of lightning less than a kilometer for much of Catalonia. It is a 2D vectorial set of geographic information at 1:5,000 scale.
Public forests are forest land belonging to public entities: Government of Catalonia, local, decentralized municipal entities, provincial, state, etc. Public forests are also considered the communal forest land, the use of which corresponds to a population of common neighbors. Also considered private forests managed by the Government through an agreement or consortium.The set contains information for the region of Catalonia, public and private forests managed by the Government, described by coordinates in two dimensions (2D) and attributes that describe the elements necessary for the protection, management and conservation.
The XRAD provides information on the identification, location and status of the network of radars (XRAD) owned by the Meteorological Service of Catalonia, which has four radars integrated into the XRAD. The XRAD is designed for the identification of meteorological echoes in the atmosphere and to provide quantitative estimates of rainfall of great meteorological and hydrological interest. The network is made up of four Doppler type radars that operate in band C: the radar of Vallirana, the radar of Puig d’Arques, the radar of Panadella and the radar of Tivissa-Llaberia. It is a 2D vectorial set of geographic information at 1:5,000 scale.
Limits and surfaces of the different hunting management figures in Catalonia, derived from Law 1/1970 of April 4, of hunting, and classified as special regime, and of classified land for common exploitation, as well as other semantic information relevant to its management.
The synthetic Urban Map of Catalonia is a synthesis map of the general planning, in two dimensions (2D), which allows a continuous reading of the country’s urban planning, above the municipal boundaries. It is a synthetic graphic recast of all those files that correspond to current general planning, which incorporates the resources and associated estimating judgments as well as the corrections of error, approved by the urban planning organizations of the Generalitat and published in the DOGC. The synthetic MUC includes only the current general planning and, therefore, does not recast either the derived planning or the urban director, which can be consulted in the RPUC, or the urban determinations of the partial territorial planning. The synthetic MUC has no legal validity, as the technical means currently used do not guarantee it. It is, therefore, an informative value map, drawn up on the basis of the interpretation of the official general planning documents available in the archives of the Department of the Vice-Presidency and Digital Policies and Territory (DVPD).
XEMA provides information on the identification, location and status of the network of Automatic Meteorological Stations (XEMA) owned by the Meteorological Service of Catalonia. On the occasion of the entry into force of Law 15/2001, of 14 November, the XEMA was created by grouping the stations of three different networks: the Network of Automatic Meteorological Stations (XMET) of the Meteorological Service of the Directorate General of Environmental Quality of the Department of the Environment; the Agrometeorological Network of Catalonia (XAC) of the Department of Agriculture, Livestock and Fisheries; and the Snow-related Network of Catalonia (XANIC) of the Cartographic Institute of Catalonia. The EMAs are equipped with sensors that provide information on weather variables that allow to know the weather situation in real time and improve the country's climate knowledge (temperature, relative humidity, wind speed and direction, global solar irradiance, precipitation and atmospheric pressure). It is a 2D vectorial set of geographic information at 1:5,000 scale.
The Radiosonde Station information set provides information on the identification and location of the radiosonde station owned by the Meteorological Service of Catalonia. It is a vector geographic information set of 2D at a scale of 1: 5,000. The data recorded at the Radiosonde Station allow a vertical characterization of the atmosphere by means of instruments transported by a balloon that is launched automatically twice a day, at 11:00 and 23:00 hours UTC. The station is located on the roof of the Faculty of Physics of the University of Barcelona and belongs to the World Meteorological Network through the GTS (Global Telecommunication System).
