How do I connect as a producer?

Follow these steps to connect:

  1. If you do not already have an account in our service Geotorget to order Lantmäteriet's geodata products, create an account and log in via Geotorget NGP (new window).
  2. Follow this guide to continue the process.

Manage APIs in the API Portal

You manage your permissions to make datasets available for NGP in the API Portal. The API Portal is available in both production and verification environments. Both environments work in the same way and there are the same login details for both environments.

Use the respective link to manage your permissions in the respective environment in the API Portal:

Link to the API Portal VER:

Link to the PROD API Portal:

Follow the guide on how to set up access to the APIs in NGP (pdf, in Swedish, new window). The guide works for both ver and prod.

Add an additional amount of data

When you have an existing agreement you can when it becomes relevant choose to add more data sets. You log in with your account and go on to NGP (new window).

See the wizard for adding an additional amount of data.

Use a representative

A producer can use a representative (one or more) to make their data sets available in NGP. This applies both to accessibility via data host and via own APIs. A representative can be a municipality, authority or consultant who, on behalf of a producer, makes data sets available in NGP.

When an representative makes data sets available to a producer, the agent needs to have its own separate authorization. A producer may not pass on his own authority to the representative .

It is the producer's responsibility to ensure that the agent at all times complies with the producer's commitment and terms in the producer agreement. It is recommended that there is an agreement between the producer and the representative for the assignment to make data sets available in NGP. No separate agreement needs to be signed between the representative and Lantmäteriet in the role of Coordinator for NGP.

Take a look at the guide for how you as a producer handle agents in the NGP view in Geotorget. (only in Swedish)
