Open Maps for Europe: unlocking the value of pan European mapping datasets
Open Maps for Europe provides easy access to harmonised pan-European geospatial open data from Europe’s National Mapping, Cadastral and Land Registration Authorities (NMCAs).
This presentation will demonstrate how users can access the maps, via the online gateway for discovering, viewing, licensing, and downloading the datasets. These include pan-European topographic data at 1:250 000 and 1:1 million scale, as well an Open Gazetteer, imagery and digital open data elevation model. A pilot open cadastral map for 4 countries will also be available.
The pan-European datasets are created using a unique data integration process which harmonises national geospatial information to standard specifications so users can be confident that it is consistent, comparable, and easily shared.
The project, which is co-financed by the Connecting Europe Facility of the European Union, is coordinated by EuroGeographics, the voice of European National Mapping, Cadastral and Land Registration Authorities, in partnership with the National Geographic Institute (NGI) Belgium.
