National Maps 30% 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?

I have changed B5, B6 and B7 to NO because on the initial website provided I have not identified data compliant with the requirements of this theme. Thus, I have reviewed the view service provided by Military Geographical Service (SGM). There have been other services indicated, such as this one, but it has not been working on the period of this reviewing process (app 1 month). We acknowledge and thank Chino Carranza for the valuable contribution to this theme, helping us with insightful answers.
