The PC-Axis program

Pc-Axis is the format that the INE uses to publish and disseminate the bulk of its statistical production via its website, in the INEbase section. In order to query the tables no additional program is needed, since a viewer is included in a viewer that includes a number of basic functions (selection of variables, rotation, sorting, exporting, graphics and maps draw...). The download of statistical tables are available for download in different formats, Pc-axis included; in order to work with this type of file, it is necessary to have the Pc-axis program installed.

The PX-Map and Municipal Maps programs

This is a program that enables the user to generate his or her own statistical maps from tables that include territorial information. In order to be able to compile a map with the PX-Map, it is necessary to have installed the PC-Axis program.

The maps enable representation of the values of a single thematic variable, so that If the table contains more than one, for the remainder of the variables a single value should be selected. It is essential that the territorial variable in the table (provinces, for example) be positioned in the margin; If the original table is not shown in this way, the variable rotation option may be used in order to position this as appropriate.

Once this program is installed, maps may be generated with geographical information on an Autonomous Community and Provincial level. For statistical tables containing municipal information, it will also be necessary to install the latest version of the Municipal Maps program, which includes the outlines of municipalities in accordance with the list of municipalities valid at 1 January each year.

Therefore, the Internet browser will recognise them as such and will directly launch the PC-Axis program. If this does not occur, check the browser set-up in the section referring to associated applications.
