As part of the common public-sector eGOVERNMENT strategy 2011-2015, the government and Local Government Denmark have agreed on a basic data programme.
The programme contains a number of specific improvements and initiatives in public-sector basic data, which will underpin greater efficiency and growth.
Basic data is used throughout the public sector and is an important basis for public authorities to perform their tasks properly and efficiently. Basic data is also a potential driver for innovation, growth and job creation in the private sector. Read more about the programme at Digitaliseringsstyrelsen.
As geographic basic data, from 1 January 2013 a large part of the data at the Danish Geodata Agency will be available for commercial and non-commercial purposes - free of charge. This includes topographic data (maps), the cadastral map and the Danish Elevation Model.
