Geoportti Research Infrastructure
Geoportti research infrastructure offers an user-centred approach and open access that will enhance the use of geospatial data, methods, and tools in research.
Ever since various GNSS-enabled smart devices started to gain popularity in the society, the amount of personal location data recorded with different fitness apps has increased steadily. This data could be used for example in city planning.
BONUS BASMATI – Baltic Sea Maritime Spatial Planning for Sustainable Ecosystem Services
Maritime Spatial Planning (MSP) requires a spatially explicit framework for decision-making, and on that background the overall objective of BONUS BASMATI is to develop integrated and innovative solutions for MSP from the local to the Baltic Sea Region (BSR) scale.
Interactive Uncertainty-aware Terrain Analysis for Large Digital Elevation Models (INTUIT)
Digital elevation models (DEMs) are an essential component of spatial data infrastructures.
LYSTRA - Awareness and activities in the World Natural Heritage Site High Coast and Kvarken Archipelago
The Lystra project will develop joint interpretation and tools to convey knowledge and information about the World Heritage Site High Coast / Kvarken Archipelago in Sweden and Finland. The main goal is to make sure the information includes the latest scientific findings, is easily accessible, engaging and is telling the story of the whole World Heritage Site in a uniform and excellent way in both countries.
Revolution of Location-based Services (SUPRA)
In our vision consumer-aimed LBSs could be supplied with new kind of contents based on real-time geospatial analysis.
VALUE - Update of the Finnish drainage basin system
The objective of the VALUE-project is to plan and specify the new Finnish drainage basin system.
VALUE II - Update of the Finnish drainage basin system, phase 2
In VALUE II the aim is to create uncertainty-aware catchment delineations for number of representative geomorphological regions of Finland.
Versatile use of country-wide laser scanning data (VERSATILE)
The project results benefit the development and updating of spatial data infrastructures, especially the Topographic database, as well as all end users of the country-wide LIDAR data.
