The State Environmental Monitoring – The electromagnetic fields monitoring
The history of creating a harmonized spatial data set
Source data comes from the JELMAG database, collecting data from electromagnetic field monitoring, maintained by CIEP. The data were transformed in accordance with INSPIRE model in subject of Environmental Monitoring Facilities (EF) in version of schema 4.0. Technical guidelines for EF subject are available in the specification D2.8.II / III.7 INSPIRE Data Specification on Environmental Monitoring Facilities – Technical Guidelines.
The spatial dataset concerns electromagnetic field monitoring (PEM), which is carried out as part of the electromagnetic field monitoring subsystem of the State Environmental Monitoring coordinated by the Chief Inspector of Environmental Protection. The basic assumption of electromagnetic field monitoring is the assessment of electromagnetic field levels in the environment and the observation of changes in relation to the values of permissible levels specified for places accessible to the public. The measuring network includes 2160 measuring points located throughout the country. In each voivodship there are 135 monitoring sites, 45 monitoring sites in each of three types of areas: central districts or urban settlements with more than 50,000 inhabitants, other cities and rural areas. Measurements are carried out at designated points in a three-year cycle of 720 points per year throughout the country. The scope of the measurements of electromagnetic field levels in the environment by means of the measurements of the intensity of the electric component of electromagnetic field at the frequency ranging from at least 3 MHz to 3000 MHz.
