INSPIRE dataset for Statistical Units theme represents information about the current Statistical grid ETRS89 of the Republic of Lithuania and current area of statistical administrative units. This statistical grid has three different cell sizes: 1x1 km, 10x10 km and 100x100km. Statistical grid cells have unique codes. These codes allow the creation of links between INSPIRE data themes, such as Population Distribution – Demography and Statistical Unit themes. This dataset represents the current area of statistical administrative units: 1) NUTS1 (boundaries and area of Lithuania), 2) NUTS2 (boundaries and area of Capital region and Central and Western Lithuania region), 3) NUTS3 (boundaries and areas of counties), 4) LAU (boundaries and areas of districts). Statistical administrative units have unique codes.
The grid is based on the recommendation at the 1st European Workshop on Reference Grids in 2003 and later INSPIRE geographical grid systems. Three vector polygon grid shape files, 1, 10 and 100 km, are available. The grids cover country borders - plus 15km buffer - and marine Exclusive Economic Zones - plus 15km buffer. Note that the extent of the grid into the marine area does not reflect the extent of the territorial waters.The reference grids are based on ETRS89 Lambert Azimuthal Equal Area projection.

Administrative units - Annex 1.
The dataset provides different scale grids of the nomenclature sheets. The grids are based on different coordinate systems (UTM, LKS-94, KS-1963, Baltija-93). Direct download link: https://www.geoportal.lt/download/opendata/Nomenklat_lapai/Nomenklaturiniai_lapai.zip
