Faroe Islands Orthophotos - Part at Tórshavn.


The Faroe Islands Orthophoto Imagery is a part of the dynamic, zoomable maps in windPRO. The orthophoto-map was released from the Environment Agency in the Faroe Islands as parts of its portals "føroyakort" (https://www.foroyakort.fo) and "kortal" (https://www.kortal.fo). The data are provided 'as-is' and via a national, open data license. Orthophotos are available in resolutions between 0.2m and 0.5m for different parts of the islands. For windPRO integration, these have been resampled into a pixel resolution of 0.5m.

Usage Notes
