The INSPIRE Directive aims to enhance the availability and interoperability of spatial data. The Act on Spatial Data Infrastructure (421/2009) contains provisions on the obligation of the public authorities to make spatial data sets and services publicly available. To meet these openness obligations, the Finnish Food Authority is making public spatial data available for viewing and downloading under section 10, subsection 2 of the Act on the Information Pool of the Finnish Food Administration (560/2021).

As part of the implementation of the INSPIRE Directive, the Finnish Food Authority is making the following data sets available:

  • Land parcel register (land cover)
  • Landscape feature on agricultural land (land cover)
  • Agricultural parcel containing spatial data (land use)
  • Agricultural land: arable land, permanent grassland or permanent crop (land use)

The spatial data sets can be viewed in Paikkatietoikkuna, Finland’s national geo-portal. You can access Paikkatietoikkuna at https://www.paikkatietoikkuna.fi. In Paikkatietoikkuna, you can view spatial data sets and services with their metadata.

In addition to Paikkatietoikkuna, you can also view spatial data sets of the Finnish Food Authority via the following WMS interface using separate spatial data software.

You can download data sets via the following WFS interface using separate spatial data software.

You can also download data sets using Atom feed.
