Open Maps For Europe has announced that official geospatial data from four additional countries is included in the project’s third and final release. North Macedonia and Switzerland have contributed multi-themed topographic open data for 1:250 000 scale EuroRegionalMap, with Denmark and Slovenia adding their data to the Cadastral Index Map prototype. North Macedonia has also provided authoritative geographical names for the multilingual Open Gazetteer.
The pan-European open datasets are created by members of EuroGeographics which represents the European National Mapping, Cadastral and Land Registration Authorities.
The Open Maps For Europe online interface, developed by thinkWhere, an Idox company, enables users to discover, view, license and download the open datasets including topographic and height data, imagery, Open Gazetteer service and the Open Cadastral Map prototype. Open Maps For Europe is co-financed by the Connecting Europe Facility of the European Union and runs until 31 December 2022.
The project is coordinated by EuroGeographics in partnership with the National Geographic Institute (NGI) Belgium.
