ABSTRACT

Concept, Procedures and Results of the Monitor of settlement and open space
development are presented. The monitoring system will describe the state and the
development of land use especially in regard to its sustainability for the entire Federal
Republic of Germany. To this end, for the first time ever it makes use of topographical
geobasis data (digital landscape model of the Authoritative Topographic-Cartographic
Information System, short ATKIS [2]). These data allow for a more precise spatial and
content-wise description of land use than that of the land register data, which serve as
the basis for the official land use statistics. On the basis of the geobasis data an
automatic calculation of indicators from the fields of settlement, open space, nature
reserves, population, traffic occurs and landscape fragmentation. The indicators are
depicted in thematic maps, thus allowing for spatial and chronological comparisons. In
addition to administrative spatial units (federal state, region, district, municipality), the
indicator values are also presented in scales of various cell widths. For calculating
building-based settlement indicators, the patented program SEMENTA® is used, which
is based on an automated evaluation of analogue maps.
