Map Printing

In the e-service Map Printing you can create and print your own map in the scale 1:10 000 or 1:50 000.

The map is adapted for printing in various paper formats and in the scale 1:10 000 the property unit divisions and/or street names can be added. The colour and rasterization can be displayed differently in different pdf-viewers.
