PAGS: postal-official classification by homogenous residential and commercial settlement structures

infas 360 developed a completely new classification system including the complete postal and official structures (in short: PAGS) on the basis of official data comprehensively available.

PAGS takes into account Germany's municipalities and postal districts and shows all built-up (settlements) and non built-up areas, subdivided within by commercial, mixed or residential use, whereas homogeneous development structure is relevant. Thus, PAGS mirrors for the very first time the reality of settlement structures. This new classification system is the basis of all our downstream analyses and data calculations.
