What data is expected?

Cadaster showing land ownership data on a map and include all metadata on the land. Cadaster data submmitted in this category must include the following charateristics:

  • Land boarders
  • Land owners name
  • Land size
  • national level
  • updated yearly

What data is available

  •   Openly licensed? Yes(Here)
  •   Is the data available for free? Yes
  •   Is the data machine readable? Yes (SHP (ArcGIS))
  •   Available in bulk? Yes
  •   Is the data provided on a timely and up to date basis? Yes
  •   Publicly available? Yes(as Matrikelkortet published by Geodatastyrelsen/Kortforsyningen)
  •   Is data in digital form? Yes
  •   Is the data available online? Yes (Here)

The data is de facto open, although it is not licensed under an Open Definition license. However the terms listed state that the publisher grants anyone a global, free, non-exclusive and unlimited right to use the data for any purpose, both commercial and non-commercial, as well as the right to alter and redistribute the data without prohibition.

As for the timeliness: The data is updated every 3 months which I have estimated as being up to date in this context.
