Finland frigjev nasjonale geografiske data

Det finske kartverket har lagt ut enorme datamengder til fri bruk:

On 1 May 2012, the National Land Survey of Finland (NLS) will open its topographic datasets to the public and to companies to be used freely and free of charge. Thus, the NLS implements the objectives set in the Programme of Prime Minister Katainen’s Government for making public databanks available to all interested parties.

This also allows attaining one of the most substantial strategic objectives of the NLS, to use topographic data as widely as possible. Hundreds of millions of euros have been invested during the last decades in the digital databank. We believe that making the data available provides the society with the most considerable total economic benefits of these investments.

Topographic data will be made available to all
