Land Regulation View Service

Land Regulation View Service contains plans and regulations from the general section of the Real Property Register. The product name in Swedish is Markreglerande bestämmelse Visning.

About this product

The information is divided into five different layers:

  • Regulations
  • Border point text, regulations
  • Property regulation plans
  • Detailed development plans
  • Amendment of detailed development plans

See presentation of the different information layers.

Maintenance and update frequency

A state or municipal land surveying authority must register all legally binding regulations. The goal is for the information in the property register to be up-to-date and complete.

A few weeks after a provision has gained legal force, it should be entered in the property register. In reality, however, there are some shortcomings, which is good to know when you are looking for information. New and altered ancient remains are retrieved from the Cultural Environment Register and registered in the property register once a month.

When the property register is updated, the changes take effect immediately in the product.


Our geodata services are normally available 24/7 and we provide support during working hours. Read more about availability to geodata services.

Technical framework and standard for view services

Our map and image view services are based on the standardized call interfaces Web Map Service (WMS) and Web Map Tile Service (WMTS) developed by The Open Geospatial Consortium (OGC). WMS is also an ISO standard (ISO 19128).

The Open Geospatial Consortium website (new window)

The services are of the nature 'question-answer', where the consumer (user's system) sends a service call over the Internet and receives a map image in a standard image format or in a vector format for certain types of services.

The characteristics of the map image are defined by the call parameters, such as information type, geographical spread, reference system, image format and image size.

There are many client applications for display services or components for integration into own system available. In addition to commercial products, there are a number of established products based on open source code, such as QGIS.
