eintragen der server-links unter „add layer“ – „external data“ – „add another layer“

WMS-Link: als „external data“ eingetragen und auch layer auswählen. leider ist die response-time des wiener-server sehr langsam 😦

hier gibt es die karte und ein schatten-modell

embedded maps


comparing google maps, vienna maps and openstreetmaps: these three sites offer more or less easy access to the html-embedded maps. take a look at the different zoom-level: osm and google use the same zoom where the vienna map has more overview an also displays more street names. vienna map is the only site that offers the mapscale and uses a single link to the useragreements. the other sites have more text on the bottom – you can read „google“ three times on the bottom!!!

Google Maps

  • embedded code with html-iframe container. basic version with width and height configuration (small, middle, large, user-defined). 
  • sample: search for „ottakringerstraße 89, wien“ and press the „link“-button on the left. in this sample you get a bubble, which is not very nice 😦

Vienna map (OGD)

  • embedded code with html-div container and java-script. basic version has also width and height configuration (small, middle, large, user-defined). 
  • sample: search for „ottakringerstraße 89“ and press the link on the top „Link/Einbetten“. here is the result:


  • embedded code with html-iframe container. no easy configuration of width and height but the possibility to add a marker
  • sample: search for „ottakringerstraße 89, wien“ (bad result list and not correct street number). to get to the embedded-code: click „export“ on the top, then choose „embedded HTML“ on the left, and then you can add the marker and copy the HTML-code. here is the result with the marker

creating simple plots with R and OGD

read data from the ogd-portal

ogd_pop <- read.table(";, header = TRUE, sep=";", skip=2, encoding="latin1")

convert the date column from a string-variable to a date type

c <- as.Date(ogd_pop$REF_DATE,"%d.%m.%Y")
merge the new c-objekt with the ogd_pop dataset
ogd_pop <- data.frame(ogd_pop,c)

rename the new column

names(ogd_pop)[8] <- "REF_DATE2"

create a new object with grouped values: sum over POP_TOTAL group by REF_DATE2

ogd_pop_hist <- aggregate(ogd_pop$POP_TOTAL, by=list(ogd_pop$REF_DATE2), sum)

rename the two columns

names(ogd_pop_hist) <- c("REF_DATE","POP_TOTAL")

and now create the plot

plot(ogd_pop_hist, type=“l“)

OGD with R (for beginners) – reading text-data

here is a small sample of accessing OGD with R and making simple aggegations

first load the CSV-data for with the R object it’s important to check the value for encoding and skip. 
ogd_pop <- read.table(";, header = TRUE, sep=";", skip=2, encoding="latin1")
now the data is loaded into R.
a simple overview of the population of each disctrict
aggregate(ogd_pop$POP_TOTAL, by=list(ogd_pop$DISTRICT_CODE), sum)

here are other simple commands
subset(ogd_pop,ogd_pop$SEX==“Frauen“) #data for Frauen
sum(subset(ogd_pop$POP_TOTAL,ogd_pop$SEX==“Männer“)) #sum just männer
sum(ogd_pop$POP_TOTAL) #total sum
