maakunnat polygons

Recommended Posts

Hi,
We look for polygons for sorting caches according to the Finnish provinces (maakunnat) and then for viewing in statistics maps. Is there any such data file available or will we have to click on the map (about OSM?)?

List of Finnish municipalities and provinces is available from Wikipedia

Official polygons for each municipality is available from Municipal division

Consulting OSM may be the easiest approach depending on accuracy requirements but the exact data is available as noted.

Thanks for the tip...

But it is terribly surprising that geocachers in Finland do not have such a set of polygons made and we have to do it in the Czech Republic.

I can share your surprise. :)

Provinces are not very stable system in Finland. Several changes have been made and new ones will be done in future because this is just a political division, not a long term tradition. http://www.geocache.fi/ can display statistics based on municipalities and provinces. Maybe you can find help from there.

Currently, i have converted polygon data from National Land Survey of Finlant to format for geocaching programs - GeoGet or GSAK.
