Topographic map raster 1:500 000 is a dataset depicting the terrain of all of Finland, and it is based on the data of General map 1:1 000 000. Regarding nomenclature and elevation, the map raster is produced by using data that has been manipulated from that of the general map on the scale 1:1 000 000 to correspond to the scale 1:500 000. The key objects on the map are the road network, buildings and constructions as well as nomenclature, waterways, land use and elevation. Topographic map raster 1:500 000 is available as a version that covers the entire country. Topographic map raster 1:500 000 is available via the service interface. The product is a part of the open data of the National Land Survey of Finland. More information: Acquisition of open data http://www.maanmittauslaitos.fi/en/opendata/acquisition.
The Topographic map is a dataset depicting the terrain of all of Finland. The key elements in it are the road network, buildings and constructions, geographic names, waterways, land use and elevation. The more precise levels of the Topographic map consist of the same map objects and map symbols depicted in the same way as in the familiar Basic map. Basic map raster is applicable to be used, for instance, as a base map for planning land use or for excursion and outdoor recreational purposes in mobile devices and in various Internet services associated with nature. When going over to the more general datasets in the Topographic map, the number and visualisation of objects and map symbols changes. The generalised small-scale Topographic maps raster are applicable to be used as approach maps in e.g. mobile devices and Internet services. The product belongs to the open data of the National Land Survey of Finland.
