Topographic Map in WindPRO: Wind Farm West of Ploce, Latvia.

Introduction

The Latvian Topographic Map is a part of the online map services in windPRO. The topographic maps in 1:50000 and 1:250000 resolution were developed by the Geospatial Information Agency of Latvia (Latvijas Ģeotelpiskās Informācijas Aģentūras - with coverage for the whole of Latvia. For coarser scales, maps are generated from vector maps from EuroGlobalMap.

Usage Notes

This map is generated from three sources:

  • Zoom-level 13-18 are based on 1:50000 maps that were derived from source data accessed in October 2019 - from the Geospatial Information Agency of Latvia.
  • Zoom-level 11-12 are based on the 1:250000 maps from the Geospatial Information Agency of Latvia.
  • Zoom level 5-10 are based on vector maps. Here raster-maps are generated at different scales. These maps were derived from EuroGlobalMap data covering Latvia.
