BETA version of Download open data service published 

A BETA version of the Download open data service has been published on MapSite. During the BETA stage, the service will be tested and developed. At the first stage, Laser scanning data 0.5 p, Laser scanning data 2008–2019, Elevation model 2 m, and the Topographic Database are available via the service.
More datasets will be added to the BETA service gradually. Furthermore, the range of file formats is not yet final, and more dataset-specific formats will be added. The aim is to launch the production version of the service by the end of 2022.
New features in the BETA service:

  • More versatile delimitation methods than in the current service
  • Added possibility to download materials by theme from the Topographic Database
  • GeoPackage files from the Topographic Database contain sample styles that can be opened with QGIS (in Finnnish) – these have also been added to the GeoPackage files downloaded from the current service
  • The datasets can be downloaded as .zip packages

The current Download open data service at will be normally available until the new service has been transferred from the BETA stage to production and all the open datasets of the National Land Survey of Finland are available through it.
