  • Population density and area of administrative entities (region, province, district and municipality) for Wallonia.

  • The files contain the population characteristics (total, gender and/or age groups) by 1 km² square grid cell in Belgium on January 1st, according to the European definition of the population. The European definition takes into account the 12-months criterion and includes asylum seekers. More information at https://ec.europa.eu/eurostat/cache/metadata/en/demo_pop_esms.htm#unit_measure1589188532500.

    The Belgian gravimetric database consists of 69,000 measurements, made using relative spring gravimeters. This database is managed by the Royal Observatory of Belgium since 1925. Two superconducting gravimeters measure elusive gravity variations at the stations of Membach and Rochefort, with a precision better than 1E-10 of gravity at the surface of the Earth (g). Since 1996, an absolute gravimeter performs repeated gravity measurements at selected sites, with an accuracy of 1E-9 g.

  • The number of inhabitants on January 1 according to the official definition of the population, by administrative entity (region, province, district and municipality) for Wallonia.

  • The data set has been established according to the INSPIRE format. It presents in the form of polygons the breakdown of Belgium in almost 20,000 statistical sectors. The statistical sector is the basic territorial unit resulting from the subdivision of the territory of municipalities by STATBEL since 1970 for the dissemination of its statistics at a finer level than the municipal level. A statistical sector cannot extend over two municipalities and any point in the municipal territory is part of one and the same statistical sector. The 1970 and 1981 versions are shown in analogue format while the 2001, 2011, 2018 and 2019 versions are available in digital vector format. The files can be linked to the data on population, housing and disposable income on the website of Statbel.

  • Annual, summer and winter mean potential evapotranspiration given in respectively mm/year and mm/3 months and based on the Penman-Monteith definition. The potential evapotranspiration fields are available for the present target year 1975, which corresponds to the middle of the 30-year period 1961-1990.

  • The number of inhabitants on January 1 according to the official definition of the population, by administrative entity (region, province, district and municipality) for Flanders and the Brussels Capital Region

  • Mean key indicators on future climate for Belgium for precipitation, temperature, relative humidity, wind speed, global solar radiation and potential evapotranspiration (spatial distributions are available through the WMS view service). The key indicators are derived from a multi-model ensemble of climate change signals or factors for a mean and high impact scenario (corresponding to respectively the 50th, and 5th or 95th percentile of the change factors), and for multiple future target years (2030, 2050, 2085, 2100).

  • Annual temperature extremes given in number of days: 1/ Total number of heatwaves occurring once in 20 years; 2/ Maximum length of the heatwaves occurring once in 20 years; 3/ Hot days: Mean annual number of days with maximum temperature > 25°C; 4/ Tropical days: Mean annual number of days with maximum temperature > 30°C; 5/ Frost days: Mean annual number of days with minimum temperature < 0°C. Heatwaves are defined according to the Royal Meteorological Institute of Belgium when the maximum temperature in Uccle is >= 25°C during at least 5 consecutive days, during which at least 3 days the maximum temperature is >= 30°C. The temperature extremes are available for the future target year 2085, which corresponds to the middle of the 30-year period 2071-2100, and for mean and high impact scenarios corresponding respectively to the 50th and 95th percentiles of the change factors.
