Built environment information systems

Built environment information systems are developed and maintained in support of land use steering, land use planning, participation, monitoring and research. The aim is to serve all operators in land use so that even parties outside the environmental administration can utilise the systems as the basis of their operations.

Easy access to data on the built environment

The current land use data system entity of the environmental administration collects and provides nationwide material. GIS data and statistics produced in cooperation with various parties provide a diverse outlook on the built environment and land use plans and decisions. Electronic tools assist in the steering of land use. Systems and materials on various topics have been developed to facilitate monitoring in accordance with the Land Use and Building Act, and these are accessible via the general interfaces of the Ministry of the Environment’s administrative branch.

Instructions and advice are provided for customers, to support them in the use of data systems. Contacts with cooperating parties are maintained in order to receive feedback required for system development. In addition, meetings are arranged on an annual basis.

Electronic services for the built environment to be improved

New information services for the living environment are created under the Action Programme on eServices and eDemocracy (SADe). The alert service Tarkkailija and enquiry service Harava have been completed and are available for use. The information and analysis service Liiteri will replace the current information resources and the new interface will facilitate the easier utilisation and combination of data.

The interfaces for saving planning information will remain in the land use data system entity, but their operability will be improved.
