Unpacking files

  • Laser scanning data is compressed in LAZ-format. Use laszip.exe, available from to unpack the files.
  • Orthophotos is compressed in JP2-format. 
  • Other data is compressed in zip-format (filename ends in .zip) and may be unpacked with any compression application available online.

Updating files

Datasets are updated at least once a year. New orthophotos and laser scanning data classified using stereo models will be included in the service as soon as they are completed. The Topographic database's GML file format is updated continuously and the plan is to continuously update the Basic map raster as well. A change in the data is included in an updated file in the download service within a week. The download page shows the date of the last update for each file.
