Gathering geographical data from the region

Southwest Finland Regional Inforshare Service called Lounaistieto has used Oskari since 2015 as their map service . The  map service  hosts a variety of GI data from the region. The map service is a good example of Oskari service without any tailoring.

Lounaistieto is run by several organisations in the region, City of Turku being one of them. Sara Tamsaari from Regional Council of Southwest Finland and Katariina Hilke from City of Turku represent the GI Centre of SW Finland (Lounaispaikka) which is funding the creation of Lounaistieto services in Oskari Joint Development Forum.

Lounaistieto offers a home for lost GI data

While Paikkatietoikkuna acts as a national geoportal, Lounaistieto map service has its own niche providing and hosting project datasets and other regional geographical information that otherwise would be lost in the information flow.
