Maps & Topography
The Danish Geodata Agency (Geodatastyrelsen) is Denmark’s mapping authority and maintains a comprehensive collection of geographical information about Denmark, Greenland and the Faroe Islands.
The mapping takes place for the use of public administration, companies and citizens, and is conducted in cooperation with the municipalities – learn more under Common Public Geodata (FOT). The main use of topographical data is in public administration, where geographical information underpins the increasing use of e-government solutions.
The mapmaking process is digital and takes place through photogrammetry, where aerial photo data are digitised. The core geodata are kept in databases from which data collections and products are portrayed to various scales and usage. Maps thus do not only refer to printed maps but also digital geodata collections which form the basis for online views, downloads as well as printed maps.
