Our coordination responsibility

Lantmäteriet is responsible for coordinating the geodata area.

Geodata Coordination

Lantmäteriet has the task from the government to coordinate the geodata area nationally. The coordination responsibility means that Lantmäteriet develops and manages the national infrastructure for geodata together with municipalities, county administrative boards, other authorities and organizations.

Sweden builds an infrastructure for geodata

Lantmäteriet has a driving role in prioritizing, initiating and lead the work of building and managing the infrastructure.

This includes providing advice and support to organizations responsible for information - those who, according to the law and the regulation on geographical environmental information, are obliged to make their information available. We also work with the development of Geodata portal (new window) and management of the form of collaboration that we call geodata collaboration. Read more about geodata collaboration.

The geodata infrastructure should make it as easy as possible for as many people as possible to find and use geodata. The infrastructure means a common way of organizing, building and manage, make available and facilitate the use of spatial data, based on a broad collaboration involving more organizations and more data sets and services than those covered by the EU Inspire Directive.

Coordination of INSPIRE

According to the law (2010: 1767) and the ordinance (2010: 1770) on geographical environmental information, Lantmäteriet is responsible for coordinating the national implementation of the EU directive INSPIRE.
