The “ESRI 2015 prize for geographical excellence” was awarded to Apur on 7th October this year. This prize comes as recognition for the quality mapping and GIS work that Apur has carried out over the past 25 years. This work, which is today evolving on both the levels of Paris and the Metropolis of Grand Paris, has established a solid base of reference data on a metropolitan scale in the context of wide ranging institutional partnerships, notably with the National Institute for Statistics and Economic Studies -Insee-, the Ile-de France Regional and Interdepartmental Department of Infrastructures and Development -DRIEA- and the Ile de-France Urbanism and Development Institute -Iau- Idf-.
This new tool for describing statistics responds to the Parisians’ desire to be able to consult raw data of their own accord.
Around 70 key-figures are presented on themes such as, demography, family, housing, unemployment and integration, the economy, living conditions…
We find for example the number of social housing units, of births, of job seekers, and doctors, the % of the population exposed to nitrogen dioxide, the number of accommodation facilities for elderly people, etc.
The interactive tool “Business structure and its evolution -structure et évolutions commerciales-” allows users to consult business records by district.
The district records are presented based on data provided by the BDCOM, a survey of shops in Paris carried out in 2014 on the initiative of the City of Paris, the Paris Chamber of Commerce and Industry and Apur. This survey of all ground floor, commercial premises in Parisian buildings is up to its 6th edition, the previous editions having come out in 2000, 2003, 2005, 2007 and 2011.
The perimeters of the Métropole du Grand Paris public territorial establishments (EPT) were made official by decree on 11th December 2015.
The Métropole du Grand Paris, which was created on 1st January 2016, is made up of 12 territories and 151 Communes which bring together 7 million inhabitants.
Apur has gathered the first socio-economic data describing these new territories.
