Description of indicators on maps

In this comparison we would like to show the results of the chosen research into the air and water protection and waste management. The indicator charts which present the situation in particular regions allow to compare data in provinces and, in justified cases, among them. The charts come from the publication “Raporty mozaikowe Wojewódzkich Inspektoratów Ochrony Środowiska za lata 2000-2007.”

Definitions of the chosen indicators:

a) PM10 particulate matter – particles of dimension less than 10 micrometers. The PM10 particulate matter has limits of concentration in the air (according to GUS)”.

b) BOD5 – BOD5 stands for the amount of dissolved oxygen consumed in a particular period of time by bacteria performing biological processes of breaking down organic matter in water or waste. The process of degradation of organic matter lasts about 20 days, however, it is the most intense in the first five days. In Poland, BOD5 is marked for temperature of 20 C degrees. It is one of the most important indicators of water pollution with organic substances. It is used for water quality control and to assess the susceptibility of waste to biological wastewater treatment, their impact on the receiver and control of wastewater treatment plants (GUS).

c) Gross Domestic Product (GDP) - it is the market value of all final goods and services made within the borders of a country in a year.

Calculation of the annual GDP is based on an estimate of three equal in value macroeconomic categories:

1) size of production, GDP is the sum of value added to all institutional sectors or all sections, divisions of the Polish Classification of Economic Activity (PKD) of domestic production units, increased by taxes on goods and reduced by product subsidies;

2) the final result of productive activity, GDP is calculated as the sum of domestic demand, i.e. consumption and accumulation and foreign exchange of products balance,

3) The sum of primary incomes, GDP is calculated as the sum of primary income of individuals derived by institutional sectors operating on Polish territory and net primary incomes from a foreign sector.

Description of indicators on charts

  • Waste - The size of the aggregated waste in particular region. Waste quantities are expressed in thousands of megagrammes (Mg), i.e. thousands of tons per year.
  • GDP - The economic concept that denotes one of the key measures of national income used in national accounts. GDP describes the aggregate value of final goods and services, produced within the country in a given unit of time; GDP is expressed in U.S. dollars per capita.
  • Water usage - the aggregated amount of water intake expressed in cubic hectometers per year (hm3).
  • Sewage - total amount of industrial and municipal wastewater that is discharged into the environment (to water or land) within the assumed time. This indicator is expressed in cubic hectometers (hm ³) per year.
  • Population and waste plants - The chart shows the percentage of population that uses waste treatment plants in different years and regions.
  • Exemptions of grounds - The chart shows the aggregate size of land excluded from the forest use to the benefit of transport, residential and industrial land usages.
  • Degraded grounds - The chart shows the total area of devastated and degraded land in hectares (ha), for a given province and year.
  • Number of organic farms - The chart shows the aggregate number of organic farms functioning in a given year.
  • Area of organic farms - The chart shows the aggregate number of hectares used by organic farms in a given year.
