  • Laser scanning data refers to three-dimensional point-like data depicting the ground and objects on the ground. Each point is provided with x, y and z coordinate information. Laser scanning data is collected i.a. for updating elevation models, creating 3D geometries of buildings, mapping flood risks, and collecting information about forest resources. The terms of use must be approved to use laser scanning data.

  • Elevation zones is a raster dataset that visualises elevation of the terrain. The product covers the whole of Finland. There are four product versions available in which the pixel sizes are 32, 64, 128 and 512 metres. The dataset does not contain elevation values; it is a colour image that visualises the height of the terrain above sea level as zones. The sea is shown in light blue in the elevation zone. The product Elevation zones is available as a version that covers the whole country and as versions that cover a certain area. The product belongs to the open data of the National Land Survey of Finland.

  • Laser scanning data refers to three-dimensional point-like data depicting the ground and objects on the ground. Each point is provided with x, y and z coordinate information. Laser scanning data 0.5 p has been spaced out from Laser scanning data 5 p's density of 5 p/m² to a density of 0.5 p/m². Laser scanning data 0.5 p is open data, and from 2020 onwards, it will be collected according to the national laser scanning programme (in Finnish): https://www.maanmittauslaitos.fi/laserkeilaus-ja-ilmakuvaus. For the time being, it is available only from certain parts of Finland. The product belongs to the open data of the National Land Survey of Finland. More information (in Finnish): https://www.maanmittauslaitos.fi/laserkeilausaineistot.

  • Hillshade is a raster dataset visualising the elevation of the terrain. There are five product versions available in which the pixel sizes are 2, 8, 32, 64, 128 and 512 metres. Pixel size 2 m has been produced of the dataset Elevation model 2 m. The other sizes have been produced of the dataset Elevation model 10 m. The material does not contain elevation values; it is a greyscale image that visualises the direction and steepness of hills. The product belongs to the open data of the National Land Survey of Finland.

  • Laser scanning data refers to three-dimensional point-like data depicting the ground and objects on the ground. Each point is provided with x, y and z coordinate information. Laser scanning data is available from all of Finland. The product belongs to the open data of the National Land Survey of Finland. From 2020 onwards, laser scanning data according to the laser scanning programme will be produced. The product description of the 'Laser scanning data 5 p' according to the scanning programme is available: https://www.maanmittauslaitos.fi/en/maps-and-spatial-data/expert-users/product-descriptions/laser-scanning-data-5-p. A spaced-out open dataset will be created from the new Laser scanning data 5 p: https://www.maanmittauslaitos.fi/en/maps-and-spatial-data/expert-users/product-descriptions/laser-scanning-data-05-p. The characteristics of this dataset correspond to the Laser scanning data 2008–2019 dataset.

  • Control points and their coordinates and elevations define in practice the reference system for coordinates and elevations used in Finland. The NLS benchmark register contains information about nationwide control points and benchmarks. The marks are mainly horizontal and elevation control points in classes 1–3 measured by the National Land Survey of Finland. The product belongs to the open data of the National Land Survey of Finland.

    Elevation model 10 m depicts the elevation of the ground surface of the whole of Finland in relation to sea level. Its grid size is 10 m x 10 m and the accuracy of elevation data 1.4 metres. The product belongs to the open data of the National Land Survey of Finland.

    Elevation model 2 m is a model depicting the elevation of the ground surface in relation to sea level. Its grid size is 2 m x 2 m. The dataset is based on laser scanning data, the point density of which is at least 0.5 points per square metre. The product's coverage is based on nationwide laser scanning. In some parts of the outer archipelago or the eastern border, the elevation model is not available. Elevation model 2 m is produced in two quality classes: the elevation accuracy in class I is on average 0.3 metres and the elevation accuracy in class II varies between 0.3 metres and one metre. The contours in topographic database are produced by the elevation model. The product belongs to the open data of the National Land Survey of Finland.

  • Sisävesien (järvet, joet) syvyysaineisto perustuu pääosin ympäristöhallinnon tekemiin syvyysluotauksiin. Luotauspisteaineistosta on SYKEssä johdettu syvyyskäyrät ja -alueet sekä järven maksimisyvyyspiste- aineistot. Järvien luotaus- ja maksimisyvyyspisteisiin sekä syvyysalueisiin on yhdistetty fysiografiatietoja SYKEn ylläpitämästä järvirekisteristä. Nämä syvyyskäyrät toimitetaan Maanmittauslaitokseen, jossa ne tallennetaan osaksi maastotietokantaa ja edelleen julkaistaan maastokartoista. Aineisto kuuluu SYKEn avoimiin aineistoihin (CC BY 4.0). Aineistosta on julkaistu INSPIRE-tietotuote. Lisätietoja: https://geoportal.ymparisto.fi/meta/julkinen/dokumentit/Syvyys.pdf The Lake and River Depth Profiles dataset includes information on depth profiles of lakes and rivers and is mainly based on the depth measurements done by the national environmental administration. The bathymetric lines and the depth areas are produced from separate measurement point information. Bathymetric information and the maximum depth points have also information on physiography from the lake database “Järvirekisteri” maintained by SYKE. These bathymetric lines are delivered for The National Land Survey of Finland where they are combined with the base map dataset (Maastotietokanta) and published as maps.
