Laser scanning data from City of Pori National Land Survey of Finland is providing laser scanning data, which is utilised i.a. for making topographic models. Topographic models are used for example in route optimisation and data collection applications and in applications studying water discharge and the forms of the ground surface. Laser scanning data is also utilised for creating contour lines. At the moment we are heading towards the new era of national laser scanning prog
National Land Survey of Finland, in collaboration with municipalities, produces semantically rich 3D-models of all of Finland. 3D-models will be available in Level-of-Detail 2 (CityGML) and consist of features such as buildings and bridges. 3D-data is available on National Topographic Database (Kansallinen maastotietokanta). The production begins with 3D-buildings and follows the schedule of the national laser scanning programme. 3D-models provide new type of advantages for u
Currently, Finnish municipalities and regions generate and maintain data about land use in various different ways. The data has become siloed among various operators and thus, it cannot be utilised in a common electronic form. Overlapping work is done which wastes resources and tax money. The majority of land use decision data is not easily available in a standardised, machine-readable format. That is why we have developed Land Use Decisions project, promoting the digitalisat
