Region boundaries, admninistrative boundaries - National capital cities

General information

This point layer provides the location and attributive information of national capital cities in Europe. The capital cities are identical to the centroids of the NUTS-0 region layer (country layer). This layer can be used just for mapping purposes or as points of interest, but can also be used for specific analytical purposes. The main features of this coverage are:

Layer names: NUTS0CENT
Feature classes: points (*.PAT)
No of point features: 41
User attributes associated with PAT: 8

Detailed description of the point attribute table

The PAT of the NUTS0CENT coverage contains the following user-defined attributes:

Attribute Width Output Type Dec. Contents
POINTID 10 10 I --- Unique point ID xx.yyyy
xx = Country ID
yyyy = point number 0001 …
LABEL 30 30 CI --- City name
COUNTRY 4 4 C --- ISO country code
POPCITY 8 8 I --- City population (in 1,000)
POPAGG 8 8 I --- Agglomeration population (in 1,000)
POPCOUNT 8 8 I --- Country population (in 1,000)
X-COORD 4 12 F 3 X-coordinate (in m)
Y-COORD 4 12 F 3 Y-coordinate (in m)

POINTID represents a unique point ID, with x.0000 representing the capital city (x = country ID). COUNTRY indicates the ISO country code of the country in which the city is located (i.e. whose capital city it is).

LABEL gives the name of the city.

POPCITY, POPAGG and POPCOUNT provide actual population figures for the city (POPCITY), the entire agglomeration area (POPAGG) and the overall country (POPCOUNT). If a city does not constitute a greater agglomeration area, then the population figures provided in POPAGG and POPCITY are identical.

X-COORD and Y-COORD give the geographical position of the city centre.
