Grid net for statistics 1 km x 1 km covers whole of Finland. The grid net includes all grid squares in Finland. The location reference of a grid square is the coordinates of the bottom left corner of each grid cell. An identifier in accordance with national conventions (consecutive numbering) and INSPIRE definitions (format: 1kmNxxxxExxxx, where 1 km expresses the square grid size, N the y coordinate of the bottom left corner of the square divided by 1,000 and E the x coordinate of the bottom left corner of the square divided by 1,000) has been produced for each grid cell. The Grid net for statistics 1 km x 1 km is the area division used in the production of statistics by 1 km x 1 km squares.

Statistics Finland's Web Service is a WMS interface service through which the following data required by INSPIRE and national legislation on geographic information are available: 1) Statistical units: Regional divisions (municipality, major region, region, sub-regional unit, Regional State Administrative Agency (AVI), Centre for Economic Development, Transport and the Environment (ELY)) and grid 1 km x 1 km. 2) Non-profit and public services: Educational institutions (comprehensive schools, upper secon-dary general schools) 3) Production and industrial facilities: Production and industrial facilities 4) Population distribution by the regional divisions used in statistics and by 1 km x 1 km grids. Other data published: - Open data by postal code area (Paavo) - Population distribution by 5 km x 5 km grids The data are administered by Statistics Finland. The service is free of charge and does not require authentication or identification with a user ID and password.
