Abstract

In the Fifth Framework Programme the activities carried out in the Institute for Environment and Sustainability on the subject related to sustainable urban and regional development have been referred to as the 'MOLAND project'. The aim of MOLAND is to assess, monitor and model past, present and future urban and regional development from the point of view of sustainable development, by setting up land use and transport network databases for various cities and regions in Europe. This technical note describes one of the seven MOLAND regional databases, the one on the 120 km long transport corridor between the cities of Dresden in Germany and Prague in the Czech Republic. The whole database covers an area of 4885 square kilometers, comprising the corridor (2830 square kilometers) and the cities of Dresden and Prague (2050 square kilometers), which were already completed in the MURBANDY phase of the project.
