Open data web service on sustainable society opened in Finland

03/18/2016, Society, SYKE

Finnish Environment Institute (SYKE) has a new open data web service. SYKE produces open data and information for an ecologically, economically and socially sustainable society. SYKE’s open data includes versatile information on water resources, surface and ground waters, the Baltic Sea, environmental load and distractions, the valuable natural environment, land cover and the built environment.

Environmental data is accessible by utilizing web services, spatial datasets and satellite observations, as well as data stored in environmental information systems. Environmental data can also be viewed in various web map applications.

The data and information is produced and collected mainly by the organizations of environmental administration, especially Finnish Environment Institute (SYKE) and Centers for Economic Development, Transport and the Environment (ELY Centers).

Open data web service is mainly available in Finnish language.
