Suomi.fi - maps - pool of possibilities
In Finland it is possible for public sector organisations or actors performing official public regulatory role to utilize Suomi.fi - maps service for free. E.g. Finnish municipalities can create embedded maps to their own websites and gain a stack of high quality data at the same time.
Services for the visually impaired
One of the most recent datasets added to the service is a simplified map for visually impaired and it is essential part of improved services for the public. The service provides also a possibility to attach your own datasets or interfaces to the service.
Tailor your own map
With RPC -technology it is also possible to tailor the Suomi.fi -maps to apply with the public sector service providers own visual look or utilize own databases. One example of this is the fishing restrictions service.
The most recent updates to the service (in 2017) has been the improvements to My places- functionality with multiple new features, one being the transparency effect of the area features (polygons).
