In the beta version of the NLS Open data file download service, which was opened in March, the following datasets have now been added for downloading, either as a dataset covering the whole country or per map sheet:
• Topographic map (raster)
• Topographic map (vector)
• Background map (raster)
• Geographic names
You can find the download function for the datasets in the menu in the right margin of the MapSite under "Download open data".
It is now also possible to download file metadata from the service. In addition, minor repairs have been made to the service.
New datasets are gradually made available in the service during the year. The goal is to introduce the production version of the service during 2022. Until then, the current File service of open data can be used as usual which provides all the open datasets of the National Land Survey of Finland.
Users of the OGC API Processes interface, which works as a background service for the user interface service, have had access to a larger number of datasets since 17 May. In addition to the datasets in the interface, the background service offers the following datasets through the interface covering the whole country or per map sheet:
• Topographic map (raster) (whole Finland)
• Background map (raster) (whole Finland)
• Hillshade (elevation model)
• NLS orthophotos
• Elevation zones (raster)
• Elevation model 10 m

You can give feedback on the beta versions of the NLS Open data file download service and the OGC API Processes interface using the form (in Finnish). Based on the feedback received, we will further develop the service.
