The Digital Map of Prague (DMP) is a fundamental topographic map that covers the entire territory of Prague. The DMP's data model comprises a digital image of a cadastral map (DOKM) or digital cadastral maps proper (for areas where they have already been approved and published, and the digital technical map (DTM) offering, on top of topographic details and technical infrastructure data, a comprehensive information layer about technical land use. Additional information about the area as well as metadata may be added to currently available data reports through the data management and data distribution system.
Color images of Prague's territory have been taken, and orthophoto maps have been made, since 1996. Since 2007, images are taken on an annual basis. Data is available as .tif and .jpg files.
The Digital Model of City of Prague is based on photogrammetric analysis of aerial images, spans the entire city, and visualizes relief, buildings, bridges and greenery. The attributes of buildings are classified based on types of surface (vertical walls, flat or slanted roofs, chimneys, dormers, spires, etc.) and can be graphically differentiated. Buildings with texture replicated from photographs are currently in a testing stage. The Digital Model of City is mainly used to incorporate designs of new real estate developments and assess their impact on the skyline and views from and of the heritage site in Prague. This 3D model is also used to verify space regulation, particularly height of buildings, as part of drafting the new land use plan. A part of the model is used in the "Central Prague from a bird's-eye view" application.
The City Development Authority Prague maintains some 350 current data layers and some 700 historical data layers, relying primarily on statutory data that must be furnished for the purposes of the Planning Analytical Materials . The Construction Act requires the authority to issue Planning Analytical Materials every two years. The City Development Authority Prague has signed contracts with several statutory data providers to exchange data updates quarterly. Another large part of thematic data comes from the Atlas of the Prague´s Environment, which has been exported by the IT unit of the Prague City Hall from the Environmental Information System. A minor part of the thematic data comes from data processing collaboration between the City Development Authority Prague and partner organizations or agencies established by the Prague City Hall.
