With the “Infrastructure Atlas Germany”, the Federal Ministry for Economic Affairs and Energy (BMWi) lays an important foundation for gaining new knowledge about public infrastructure in Germany. The “Infrastructure Atlas” is an innovative, data-driven research project that was carried out in cooperation with TÜV Rheinland. With the project, the researchers wanted to gain a better overview of infrastructure facilities throughout Germany and at the same time show the potential for using so-called geodata for the analysis of public infrastructure facilities. The heart of the project was the creation of a Germany-wide data set for the accessibility of a large number of public infrastructure facilities in the areas of education, Health, leisure, transport, security, as well as town halls and centers. With the help of this data, the researchers were also able to make initial estimates of shortages. For each infrastructure facility, such as schools, hospitals and museums, it was compiled how long it was on average to get from each residential address in Germany to the nearest facility by various means of transport (public transport, car, A high-performance public infrastructure is of fundamental importance for Germany as a business location. The newly acquired information on infrastructure equipment can be used to drive forward the further expansion of the infrastructure in an even more targeted manner. This helps to remain competitive in the long term and promotes comparable living conditions in all regions in Germany. The first evaluations of the data set can be found in the final report here. The data are also available for download on the website specially set up for this purpose. It is also possible to make further inquiries there using a contact form.
