Questions and answers

A number of products have style files for QGIS, these can be found on each product page.

If you do not find style files there, QGIS Sweden has collected gml. style files to add style to Lantmäteriet's vectorized maps in QGIS. The files can be downloaded from their Github page (new window) which can also be accessed from here (new window).

To set the reference scale zoom in, to the below recommended scales, for the various products and right-click on "Layers" in ArcMap/PRO, then in ArcMap select "Reference Scale" and then "Set Reference Scale".

In PRO directly select, when right-clicking on, "Map"/"Layers" "Set Reference Scale".

We recommend the following reference scales:

  • Topography 10, Cadastral parcels, Right, Land regulation: 1:10 000
  • Topography 50: 1:25 000:
  • Topography 100: 1:50 000
  • Topography 250: 1:100 000
  • Topography 1M: 1:500 000

Text is best visualized in the scale range 0-1: 10,000. The solution for the text not to be "compressed" on a scale between 1:10,000 -1: 20,000 is to lock the scale in 1: 10,000 by using the padlock to the right of scale.
