National Maps 100% open


What data is expected?

A geographical map of the country including national traffic routes, stretches of water, and markings of heights. The map must at least be provided at a scale of 1:250,000 (1 cm = 2.5km). Geographic information is instrumental for many use cases, including the mapping of unemployment statistics or demographics, as well as journey planning. See our methodology section for more information.

  • Scale of 1:250,000 (1 cm = 2.5km)
  • Markings of national traffic routes
  • Markings of relief/heights
  • Markings of water stretches
  • National borders

How open is the data?

The datasets collated under the FSDF project will soon replace the Topo250k as the authoritative source for these datasets
