Register Designation Direct

About this product

The register designation consists of register area, district or block name and unit, e.g. Gävle Varva 2:3. The register designation is unique in its register area. Register area is equal to municipality. Prior to the property data reform, the county and the parish were used as a register area.

The term Registerenhet (Register unit) is used as a collective term for real property, joint facility and in this case also a joint facility as they are handled in the same way in this service.

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).

World Wide Webb Consortiums website (new window)
The Open Geospatial website Consortium (new window)

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.
