    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).
