Lantmäteriet receives SEK 20 million extra - migration towards open data can begin

20 April 2023

The Swedish government proposes in the spring budget that Lantmäteriet receives an extra SEK 20 million in funding to begin migration towards open data. According to the EU-commission, this must be completed by February 2025 at the latest.

“We are happy to learn that the Government understands the importance of open data, and that they are giving us a starting point so that we can get started, says Mikael Jenssen, head of business models and product ownership at Lantmäteriet.”

The government's proposal for extra funding of SEK 20 million covers this year's work on migration to open data. In order for Lantmäteriet to be able to meet the EU Commission's requirements for open and free data by February 2025, extra funding is required in the coming years as well. The extra funding covers work in 2023 to change business and delivery model for planned work.

Lantmäteriet’s currently fee-based information, which in the future will become open data, includes address and building data, information on property boundaries, elevation data, hydrography, maps and aerial photographs.
