    The location of the real property unit is shown on the cadastral index map. On the map, there are property and other register unit boundaries and property identifiers. The product is a part of the open data of the National Land Survey. Further information (in Finnish):

  • Division into administrative areas (raster) is a dataset depicting the municipal Division of Finland. The dataset Municipal Division is produced in scales 1:10,000, 1:100,000, 1:250,000, 1:1,000,000 and 1:4,500,000. The data included in the dataset in scale 1:10,000 are taken from the Cadastre. Regarding other scales, municipal boundaries have been generalised to suit the scale in question. Division into administrative areas products in raster format include municipal boundaries only. The product is a part of the open data of the National Land Survey.

  • The Plain map series is a simple, plain and readable dataset product series in raster format that depicts the whole of Finland. The product is meant to be used as a background map whose character changes to a guide map in large scales. Impaired vision has been taken into account when designing the product. The key objects presented on the map are roads and railways, road names, buildings and constructions, administrative borders, waterways and other geographical names. The road network, public buildings and texts have been especially emphasised. The most usual limitations of colour vision have been taken into account in the use of colours. The product belongs to the open data of the National Land Survey of Finland.

  • The Finnish Uniform Coordinate System (in Finnish Yhtenäiskoordinaatisto, YKJ) has been used in biological observation mapping since the 1970s. Based on YKJ, Finland is divided in square-shaped areas, the size of which are determined according to the needs of the study. The area division used in national biomonitoring is 10 km x 10 km squares, but in some cases 1 km x 1 km and 100 m x 100 m YKJ squares are also used. This data set includes XY-lines that form square grid in four scales according to Unified Coordinate System (100 m - 100 km), with identifiers describing each square.

  • The Finnish Food Authority's file service is the ATOM feed, through which land cover and land use map layers are available. The service is based on material containing information from the integrated support control and administration system (IACS) and the land parcel register (LPIS). The data is managed by the Finnish Food Authority. The use of the service is free of charge and does not require authentication.

  • The Luke download service for MS-NFI is an Atom feed, that provides data from the Luke Multisource National Forest Inventory (MS-NFI) starting from year 2006. The data is in the topic areas decribed in Appendix II and III of the EU INSPIRE Directive. The service uses the data downloadable from the Luke file service for publicly available data (, The data are managed by Luke. The service is free of charge and no authentication is required. The data are part of the open data of Luke.

    The map sheet division is a system created for printing maps, which covers map sheet codes, map scales and map sheet sizes. The map sheet division is a system created for printing maps, which covers map sheet codes, map scales and map sheet sizes. Today, map sheet division is also used for other purposes. It is also possible to download other NLS datasets in addition to maps in accordance with map sheet division. The map sheet division TM35, which is based on the projected coordinate reference system ETRS-TM35FIN is in use today. Before 2007, a map sheet division that was based on the KKS coordinate reference system was used. The TM35 map sheet division consists of 7 different grid sizes, the smallest scale is 1:200,000 and the largest is 1:5000. An explanation of how the grids are further split into more detailed grids and the principles of map sheet numbering is on the National Land Survey website (in Finnish) The attribute data of the grids include map sheet number, the area of a square on the grid, perimeter and the coordinates of the centre of the square. The map sheet division is available as a file in vector format and through our contract-based WMTS service in raster format. In addition, you can view it in the geoportal Paikkatietoikkuna. The product is a part of the open data of the National Land Survey.
