Topographic web map Viewing, layer divided

This service gives access to a topographic web map that is adapted for screen viewing. The information is divided into fifteen themes of information. This layer breakdown gives you the freedom to choose what information you want to display.

Description

Topographic web map Viewing, layer divided (Topografisk webbkarta Visning, skiktindelad)

Each of the types of information, except the hill shading, is available in two layers. A layer where the information is presented clearly and in full colour and one in which the information is presented dimmed in a grayscale. Each layer is a separate image.

See presentation with examples from both information layers.

Maintenance and update frequency

The information in the map is updated at different intervals depending on the type and scale of the information. A simplified description of the timeliness is:

  • Information in scales up to 1:20,000 is updated at least once per day.
  • Information in scales smaller than 1:20,000 is updated weekly, except for the information from the Sweden Map 1:1 million, which is updated annually.

Availability

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

Our geodata services (APIs) require that you have an application or software capable of managing the services. To view real property information or maps directly in your browser, you can use Lantmäteriet's e-services.

Technical framework and standard for display services

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

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 (new window).

At OSGeo, The Open Source Geospatial Foundation (new window) you can read more about software in the field of geodata that are based on open source code.

If you want deeper technical information about our display services, read the technical description on each product page.
