National Maps 30% open

Bosnia and Herzegovina

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?

As I understand, Bosnia and Herzegovina has 2 main entities: Republika Srpska and the Federation of Bosnia and Herzegovina that govern themselves. Thus, there are 2 official geoportals: for the Federation and for Srpska. They run on different systems and have different layers and categories. With respect to the national maps theme, I have to chose data is not available online as the Srpska geoportal has been unresponsive for a period of 2 weeks, during this review. Except the OSM layer, I could not see any topographic map or ortophoto.
