Spatial data sets on the cultural environment

The sites of the data sets of the cultural environment have usually also been geocoded on the map either as points corresponding to locations or as bordered areas. These points and bordered areas, i.e. the spatial data of the sites, can be viewed on the target pages of the Cultural environment service portal as well as via the map application related to the service portal. Downloading of the vector-based spatial data is possible as per the instructions below.
The descriptions of the spatial data sets and services can be read from the Geoportal of the National Land Survey of Finland.

Interfaces

The spatial data of the Finnish Heritage Agency have been published under the Creative Commons CC By 4.0 licence.

The spatial data sets can be used with applications reading spatial data (WMS and WFS) interfaces .

The interfaces offer spatial data concerning protected cultural environment sites whose information are maintained in the registers of the Finnish Heritage Agency.

The protected sites of the cultural environment registers of the Finnish Heritage Agency (for planning purposes) information product

This information product contains the spatial data of the protected sites of the Finnish Heritage Agency’s Antiquities record, the built cultural environment sites relating to the national spatial planning objectives, and the spatial data of the protected buildings contained in the Finnish Heritage Agency’s built heritage register. The built heritage register data sets include the buildings protected by specific laws (Decree 480/85, the Church Act, the Act on the Orthodox Church, railway contract 1998). The Finnish Heritage Agency’s information product does not contain sites protected by the law on the protection of building heritage (or the old Act on the Protection of Buildings) or buildings or areas protected by land-use plans. Note! The data relating to any buildings protected by the Act on the Protection of Buildings must be requested either from the Centre for Economic Development of the area in question or the Finnish Environment Institute. The data concerning the buildings protected by land-use plans are available from the party who drafted the land-use plan (municipality or region).

All the sites of the cultural environment registers of the Finnish Heritage Agency (for research purposes) information product

This information product consists of the spatial data sets contained in the register portal of the cultural environment: The sites of the Antiquities record (also other ancient monument sites in addition to the protected ancient monuments), the built cultural environment sites relating to the national spatial planning objectives, the built cultural environment sites 1993, world heritage sites, the buildings contained in the built heritage register which are protected by specific laws (Decree 480/85, the Church Act, the Act on the Orthodox Church, railway contract 1998), the sites stored in the built heritage register which have been processed officially but have not been protected. The information product does not contain sites protected by the law on the protection of building heritage (or the old Act on the Protection of Buildings) or buildings or areas protected by land-use plans.


Spatial data sets on protected sites accordant with the INSPIRE directive

The INSPIRE directive obligates officials to offer spatial data sets on key information resources in the form of a common European data model. The address of the WMS interface is presented below as well as three download packages (zip) on the spatial data sets maintained by the Finnish Heritage Agency and covered by the INSPIRE directive.
