About this product

The dossiers usually contain a map with related documents and describe how the property was formed or what changes has occurred on it. The documents describe how the procedure has been implemented and what decisions have been made, as well as information about joint property units, joint facilities, easements and rights. The archives also include detailed development plans and other land regulations.

  • Retrieve a dossier containing one or more pages

Maintenance and update frequency

The documents in the dossier are drawn up by the Property formation authorities in connection with property formation. In addition to the state authority Lantmäteriet, there are 39 municipal Property formation authorities (KLM) who are responsible for property formation.

In the digital property formation procedure, the dossiers are stored in the digital archive and become immediately available in the service. However, there are still dossiers that are archived in analog form and these are scanned 1-2 times / year.

Technical framework and standard for direct access services

Our direct access services are primarily based on standards from the World Wide Webb Consortium (3WC) och The Open Geospatial Consortium (OGC).

The service interfaces are REST based where object types are in many cases built using GML (Geography Markup Language) or JSON (JavaScript Object Notation) to describe its geographical properties.

The services are of the nature 'question-answer' where the consumer (user's system) sends a service call with search terms or selection parameters over the Internet and receives a list with one or more geographical objects in response.

To quickly get started and test the services before they are integrated into a separate system, a tool such as Postman can be used as a tool for testing REST-based Webservices.

Forms for evaluation of purpose for extraction-, notification- and download products

Lantmäteriet also reviews all orders from a confidentiality perspective. Confidentiality applies, among other things, to information concerning total defence if it can be assumed to damage the country's defence, or is considered to constitute a danger to national security if the information is disclosed in accordance with 15 kap 2 § Public Access to Information and Secrecy Act (2009:400). The evaluation may therefore in some cases take from three to five working days.
