Indicators, data and data visualisation projects
As Internet applications have moved to the mobile environment, governments need to develop new ways to interact with their citizens. GCRO is interested in investigating new Internet and mobile phone technologies that will provide innovative ways to connect government and citizens.
The GCRO GIS website was developed as an interactive tool to assist both local and provincial governments, to better understand the Gauteng City-Region and make informed decisions about development in the GCR. The application allows the user to visualize GCR base data and themed layers, by offering different perspectives of the GCR, such as population distribution, economic datasets a
In 2009 GCRO commissioned a 6 643 respondent sample survey to measure the quality of life, socio-economic circumstances, satisfaction with service delivery, psycho-social attitudes, value-base, and other characteristics of residents in the Gauteng City-Region. Fieldwork was provided by DRA, who won a highly competitive tender.
