This tool was built for regional planners as well as national planning institutions. It allows to analyse regions regarding various (relative) indicators in different spatial contexts and relations.
The ESPON REGICO tool offers multi-scalar territorial analysis (MTA) to analyse how the performance of regions varies in relation to a specific area. The mapping tool facilitates users, for example, to relate regions to the ESPON space, to their respective national borders or their closer vicinity (e.g. neighbouring regions, catchment areas of commuters). For example, this tool can be used for benchmarking or as a means to decide on the distribution of investments in regional development. Initially designed for regional planners as well as national planning institutions, the tool could be useful for staff of managing authorities and joint secretariats and / or programme evaluators.
In a nutshell: ESPON REGICO allows to analyse regions regarding various (relative) indicators in different spatial contexts and relations. The tool is available as web application via: https://regico.espon.eu/
