The Geodetic Archive

From the geodetic archive you can order point descriptions, point maps, coordinate and elevation data. Coordinate transformations can also be found here.

The contents of the archive

The Geodetic Archive's databases contain information on the points of the Swedish national reference networks with regard to point identity, marking, coordinates, heights and gravity, as well as measurements and calculations that have been made for this purpose.

The Geodetic Archive as a whole contains documents from the end of the 18th century to the present.

Digital Geodetic Archive (DGA)

Some of the material from the modern coordinate and elevation systems is available in the Digital Geodetic Archive and contains almost 50,000 height benchmarks and 10,000 horizontal control points (so-called SWEREF and RIX 95 points).

You can access the content in DGA via our services:

  • Hitta stompunkt (roughly translated as Find Geodetic Control Point) is an e-service where you can find point descriptions as well as coordinate and height lists. No login required.
  • Stompunkt visning (Geodetic Control Point Viewing Service) allows you to see the geodetic control points in your own GIS application along with other data you are working with.
  • Stompunkt direkt (Geodetic Control Point Direct Access Service) is intended for machine-to-machine communication and is suitable for you who want to use a service in your own systems.

You can also access the information by contacting the geodesy department.

Provide information about our ground control points

You can report if you have found again one of Lantmäteriet's ground control points, if a point has been destroyed, or if a point description contains incorrect information.

Let us know that the information in the DGA needs updating.
