Example: How to create a population density map for the Centrope region

Step 1 of 5: Open CentropeSTATISTICS – click on the CentropeSTATISTICS button on the left in the CentropeMAP geoportal

Perhaps you receive a warning: "You are entering the CentropeSTATISTICS expert mode. This tool requires basic knowledge in statistics, mapping, and cartography, and uses cookies." if you are here for the first time or after a longer period of time not using CentropeSTATISTICS. Press "OK" to continue.

Step 2 of 5: Select the population density table from the cross-border statistics database. Open the "Population indicators" folder by a single click, then click "Population density (inhabitants per square kilometre) by year". (Fig. 2 below) Select the year to be displayed from the right half of the window. You will see the message "Map or chart creation possible (click "Continue" button below)." – just click "Continue" to go to the table view.

Step 3 of 5: Switch from table view to map creation. Click the map button on top of the table column "population_density_sqkm". (Fig. 2 below) You are now taken to the map creation window.

Step 4 of 5: Select settings for your thematic map, like number of classes, classification method, or colour scheme. Click "Apply" when done. (Fig. 3 below) You will receive a preview of your thematic map. Change your settings or click "Create Map" if you are satisfied with the preview.

Step 5 of 5: Switch to the CentropeMAP window. Your thematic map is already there. (Fig. 4 below)
