Geographic data

Statistics Finland's open geographic data mainly consist of statistical areas and statistical data combined with them. On this page you can find collected information about the contents and interfaces of Statistics Finland's open geographic data and instructions for implementing them.

Statistics Finland's data are available on the WMS and WFS interfaces. Some of the data are also available in a form compliant with the INSPIRE Directive. These data are available both on the WMS interface and on the new type of OGC API Features interface.

Statistics Finland's open geographic data are part of the national geographic information infrastructure. Further information about the infrastructure and the regulations and standards that define it can be found on the website of the National Land Survey (in Finnish).
