Data balance sheet

The National Land Survey's data balance sheet is a concise description of the agency's central principles and practices concerning the sustainable and secure processsing and utilisation of information. Information is described as a function of the most essential tasks of the National Land Survey.

The data balance sheet describes which types of information the National Land Survey maintains and why, what the function and significance of the information is to society and how the information is made available to society. A number of indicators and statistics are described annually.

The data balance sheet supports good information management and conformance. At the National Land Survey, the data balance sheet supports accountability as referred to in the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) and it is also connected to the implementation of the Finnish Act on Information Management in Public Administration. The contents of the data balance sheet are a significant part of the National Land Survey's document publicity description and information management model.
