  • This dataset contains borders of the HELCOM MPAs (former Baltic Sea Protected Areas (BSPAs). The dataset has been compiled from data submitted by HELCOM Contracting Parties. It includes the borders of designated HELCOM MPAs stored in the <a href="http://mpas.helcom.fi" target="_blank">HELCOM Marine Protected Areas database</a>. The designation is based on the HELCOM Recommendation 15/5 (1994). The dataset displays all designated or managed MPAs as officially reported to HELCOM by the respective Contracting State until in November 2018 (latest data update). The latest related HELCOM publication based on MPA related data is <a href="http://www.helcom.fi/Lists/Publications/BSEP148.pdf" target="_blank"> Ecological coherence assessment of the Marine Protected Area network in the Baltic. Balt. Sea Environ. Proc. No. 148 (HELCOM 2016)</a> The dataset contains the following information: MPA_ID: Unique ID of the MPA as used in HELCOM Marine Protected Areas database Name: Name of the MPA Country: Country where MPA is located Site_link: Direct link to site's fact sheet in the <a href="http://mpas.helcom.fi" target="_blank">HELCOM Marine Protected Areas database</a> where additional information is available MPA_status: Management status of the MPA Date_est: Establishment date of the MPA Year_est: Establishment year of the MPA

    The Bio-geographical regions are internally homogeneous biogeographical regions of Finland. The number of regions is 21. The regions were spatially defined by an expert committee in 1930 as collections of municipalities. Consequently, the province boundaries follow the delineation of of municipalities in the 1930's including some enclaves, exclaves, and narrow stripes as the province boundaries have not been changed or updated since then excluding the cession of territory after the Second World War. In the "Extended" data set regions have names and abbreviations in Finnish, Swedish, and Latin. No other attribute data is available.

  • Suokasvillisuuden aluejako perustuu suoyhdistymätyyppeihin. Jako on digitoitu teoksesta Suomen kartasto, vihko 141-143, Ruuhijärvi, R.1988: Suokasvillisuus. Merialueen vyöhykerajat on digitoitu R. Ruuhijärven erikseen määritteleminä v.2002. Aineisto kuuluu SYKEn avoimiin aineistoihin (CC BY 4.0). Aineistosta on julkaistu INSPIRE-tietotuote. Käyttötarkoitus: Aineistoa käytetään taustakarttojen tuottamiseen ja karkeisiin analyyseihin. The mire vegetation zones dataset includes information on vegetation zones based on combinations of different mire types. The distribution of zones has been digitized from the mire vegetation maps of the Finnish map book (Suomen kartasto, book 141-143, Ruuhijärvi, R 1998: Suokasvillisuus). The mire zones are extended to outer sea areas based on the identification made by R. Ruuhijärvi on 2002. The Finnish national borders are based on the Digital Chart of the World (DCW) dataset with coastline corrections done by SYKE. The dataset has been fitted to match the outer borders of the national waters (digitized in SYKE).

  • Suomi ulottuu pohjois-etelä suunnassa läpi boreaalisen havumetsävyöhykkeen. Se jaetaan neljään alavyöhykkeeseen, joiden rajat määräytyvät lämpöilmastosta aiheutuvien kasvillisuuserojen perusteella. Alavyöhykkeet jaetaan edelleen lähinnä ilmaston mereisyydestä ja mantereisuudesta johtuvien kasvillisuuserojen määräämiin lohkoihin. Aineisto pohjautuu YM:n muistiosta nro 3/1994 Suomen metsäluonnon monimuotoisuuden kuvaaminen digitoituun aineistoon, jota on muutettu uhanalaisuusarviointien tarpeisiin kuvaruutudigitointina eri tausta-aineistoja käyttäen. Aineisto kuuluu SYKEn avoimiin aineistoihin (CC BY 4.0). Aineistosta on julkaistu INSPIRE-tietotuote. Käyttötarkoitus: Aineistoa käytetään taustakarttojen tuottamiseen ja karkeisiin analyyseihin. Finland extends through the boreal coniferous forest zone. It is divided into sub-zones and blocks determined by vegetation differences due to the maritime and continental climate. The dataset is based on the Ministry of the Environment's Memorandum No. 3/1994. It has been modified for the needs of assessment of threatened habitat types in Finland. The material is used for background maps and overall analyzes.

  • The Arctic SDI Geoportal provides access to geospatial data and services available via the Arctic SDI to support and facilitate monitoring, management and decision making, and support sustainable development in the Arctic. Specifically, the Arctic SDI Geoportal facilitates the discovery, visualization, evaluation, download and integration of geographic data from a variety of sources for the Arctic. The Arctic SDI Geoportal is the result of cooperative efforts between the National Mapping Agencies (NMAs) of the eight Arctic Council Member countries - Canada, Denmark, Finland, Iceland, Norway, Russia, Sweden and the United States. The Arctic SDI Geoportal includes reference data (such as the Arctic SDI topographic basemap or Pan-Arctic Digital Elevation Model) and thematic data from various sources. Thematic data section includes themes such as oceans, climatology and geoscientific information. Most of the data covers the Arctic or the involved Arctic countries, but new data sources with a smaller or larger geographical extent may be accepted. The Geoportal allows searching placenames via a circumpolar gazetteer, and embedding interactive maps to any website. Some of the features require registration.
