Brief information

With its large coverage and high degree of detail, it is an excellent map to use as a background in, for example, efficient transport planning and tourism.

Public roads are divided into five basic classes. It is also clear which of these are national roads and which have reduced bearing capacity. Individual roads are reported in five classes. Among other things, roads with high bearing capacity and good alignment are shown.

The vector format allows you to tailor the map to your own business.

You can:

  • add and link your own information to objects in the map
  • integrate the map information into your own system
  • show or hide information as needed using the layering.
