This page describes a BETA-service of Vector Tiles.
Demos and demo services were developed during a 2 day codesprint in October 2017 and as a code-of-summer project in the summer months of 2018.
Updated demos and services will be available in first quarters of 2020
This BETA-service was developed and is being maintained by National Land Survey of Finland.
The service was developed in order to get a better understanding of how vector tiles work, and to get a better understanding of the possibilities and challenges related to the technology.
The vector and feature tiles are published according to the WMTS-standard and
The metadata of the service is described in the Proof-of-Concept WMTS Capabilities document for the Vector Tiles Service used in demos.
Information on vector tiles specification used in these demos and proof-of-concept service.
Information on Web Feature Service 3 specification used in these demos and proof-of-concept service.
All raster and vector data is rendered and produced dynamically from databases.
Warning! The database for the services is based on a snapshot from October 2017 and the data has become outdated. The data in the service is Open data by National Land Survey of Finland and is licensed under a Creative Commons Attribution 4.0 International License .
These demos are a Proof-of-concept for serving Vector Tiles in Gauss-Krüger zones used by the Municipalities in Finland.
The demos contain Vector Tile content overlay on WMTS raster backround maps.
Please zoom in the map to see vector content.
Note: The area limited for vector content on the map is not related to actual ETRS-GK zone extent .
More info on ETRS-GK zones see JHS 197.
This BETA-service is developed and maintained by National Land Survey of Finland.
We look forward to hear you feedback. Please send us an mail on sovellustuki at maanmittauslaitos.fi / topic: Vector tiles
The aim is to develop the service further based on the received feedback.
