Topographic Map in WindPRO - Faroe Islands


The Faroe Islands Topographic Map is a part of the dynamic, zoomable maps in windPRO. The Environment Agency in the Faroe Islands has released several maps and geospatial datasets via 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. In windPRO we have added the following maps through our dynamic map service:

  • Føroyakort 1:1.000.000 (2023)
  • Føroyakort 1:500.000 (2023)
  • Føroyakort 1:100.000 (2022)
  • Føroyakort 1:20.000 útgáva 4.0 (2017)
