Open Source Platform for Geospatial Data is an open source software package for creating your own map service. Oskari is suitable for organization use and those who want to publish their own or second party standard GIS interfaces. 

Oskari has started its journey to become a prominent Content Management System for geospatial data. It was initially started as a geoportal project for  National Land Survey of Finland to support the viewing possibilities and implementation of INSPIRE in Finland. Now tens of organisations in Finland and abroad are utilizing the software package. 

Frequently asked questions


The most easiest way to get to familiarize your self with Oskari is to test its functionalities in the Finnish national geoportal Paikkatietoikkuna or take a look at our Community Projects. Some have taken the "basic" Oskari and settled for that but some have gone further and developed own community tools on top of core Oskari. Some projects are still on their way and we can enjoy their results later on. Is your project missing from the list?
