Topographic Map in WindPRO: Wind Farm at Salme, Estonia.


The Estonian Topographic Map is a part of the online map services in windPRO. The topographic maps in 1:10000 resolution were developed by the Land Board of Estonia – and are derived from an updated geo-spatial database. For this scale, coverage is the whole of Estonia. For coarser scales maps are generated from vector maps from EuroGlobalMap.

Usage Notes

This map is generated from two sources:

  • Zoom-level 13-18 are based on 1:10000 maps that were derived from source data accessed in January 2019 - from the Land Board of Estonia.
  • Zoom level 5-12 are based on vector maps. Here raster-maps are generated at different scale. These maps were derived from EuroGlobalMap data covering Estonia.
