Top10Vector – Local topography is the data set of the Belgian orography. This data set includes eight classes. First class: earth banks. Second class: additional geometry of the slope surface. Third class: dune zone. Fourth class: historic mounds. Fifht class: cave entrances. Sixth class: cone-shaped slag heap. Seventh class: steep. Eightth class: embanlments. This data set can be bought via the corresponding hyperlink.
This web service allows the visualization of altimetry data. More specifically, it allows to visualize the National Geographic Institute's digital terrain model and the contours associated with it. This service is compliant with the INSPIRE specifications.
The contour lines contain all the lines connecting points with the same elevation, in a model which is used for a cartographic representation of the relief.
The contour lines contain all lines which connect points which are situated on the same altitude, in a model which is used to represent the relief on a large scale.
The DTM is a homogeneous and regular point grid indicating the elevation of the ground level in order to make a model of its surface. The DTM is drawn up by interpolation (adaptable prediction) of raw altimetric data (contour lines, structure lines and spot heights).
Top10Vector is Belgium's series of topographic vector data. The data set contains 37 feature classes, which are divided into eight themes (road network, railroad network, power grid, constructions, land use and vegetation, local relief and particular zones), all of which correspond to a so-pecific data set and can be obtained separately via the corresponding hyperlink.
Web service with currently available electronic data related to REGULATION (EU) No 73/2010 on aeronautical data quality requirements and Appendix 8 (Terrain and obstacle data requirements) of Annex 15 to the Chicago Convention.
This web service allows viewing the Belgian topographical vector data as established by the National Geographic Institute. It gives an overview of the data sets of the Top10Vector-series which can be purchased.
CartoWeb.be is a Web Service (WMTS/WMS) containing cartographic representations covering 11 scale levels. CartoWeb.be offers a cartographic representation which has been developed specifically for on-screen viewing of the NGI’s most recent vector data sets. Three versions are available for the Belgian territory: 1) a TOPO layer containing a cartographic representation at all scales; 2) a GREY layer, which is the symbolisation in different shades of grey and blue of the TOPO layer. It constitutes an ideal map background; 3) an OVERLAY (1:2 500 - 1:25 000) layer destined to be used as an overlay on other data (orthophotographs for instance). This layer contains the symbolisation of a few layers only. A fourth layer, CROSSBORDER, is available in order to allow viewing (only on the smallest scales) the European context of Belgium. The extent of this representation is limited and could change in the following versions. It is best to combine the CROSSBORDER layer with the TOPO layer.
