The Ministry of Environmental Protection and Regional Development (VARAM), in cooperation with the “Card publishing house "Jāņa sēta”, has created an online geospatial planning platform for local government reform.

The geospatial planning platform for local government reform is an online tool that allows you to browse and analyze specific information about Latvian municipalities in various sections and detail. The large dataset provides information on aspects of the socio-economic situation throughout Latvia, and most of the information included in the platform is unique in Latvia.
The content of the platform, on a cartographic basis, reflects not only the main results of municipal reform studies, but also for the first time in Latvia's history, based on Jāņa sēta, in cooperation with the State Revenue Service and the Central Statistical Bureau and other partners, the studies carried out show the added value of our welfare base – the local units of more than 100 000 Latvian companies both sectoral and sub-sectoral. This information is presented in the map both in terms of address and populated areas and in an aggregated way in terms of both existing and combined municipalities.
The local government reform geospatial planning platform's thematic information is based on the use of Jāņa sēta map browser, the information is updated at least quarterly and from November 12, and the study materials will be available on the home page.
