  • Govroam is a " wifi roaming " solution. This service offers to the users a simple and secure access to the wireless network of their institution, but also to networks of other participating institutions. A user from an organization that participates in govroam will be able to connect to any wireless access point broadcasting govroam. The data provided here makes it possible to locate these access points.

  • Mapindex is a WMS which allows viewing the regular index grid which has been defined on five levels for the entire Belgian territory. It has been defined in order to allow a zonal geolocation. The present version is a beta version (v2) which is submitted to the emergency services. It will evolve to a standard cartographic grid.

  • The service makes it possible to view the aerial photos with orthorectification taken by Hansa Luftbild at NGI's request following the floods of July 2021 in the areas of the Vesdre, part of the Meuse downstream of Liège and the Demer. The resolution of the original data is 6.5 cm (4 cm above the Hoëgne). The service allows the images to be viewed at a maximum resolution of 25 cm. Orthophotos are digital aerial photographs in which the systematic distortions due to the central projection, relief and the not always perfectly vertical axis of shooting have been corrected. The orthophoto thereby obtained is metrically more accurate than an ordinary aerial photograph and is highly valuable as basic information.

  • The data set contains a seamless polygonal layer representing the land cover in Belgium for the year 2006 and the year 2012. The polygons are spread over 32 classes from the CORINE Land Cover legend which are present un Belgium. The minimum map unit is 25 ha. The conceptual scale is 1:100 000. The data set also contains a polygon layer showing changes of more than 5 ha in the land cover between 2006 and 2012.

  • Landuse-Particular Zone is the INSPIRE 2D vector data set of the "Particular zones" layer originated from the Top10vector product of the National Geographic Institute in Belgium . It includes the "ExistingLandUseDataSet" features and the "ExistingLandUseObject" features in accordance with the INSPIRE specifications.

  • Top250Map is a digital version of the NGI’s topographic cartography on a scale of 1:250 000. It is the smallest scale used by the NGI to produce a cartographic representation of Belgium. It focuses mainly on inhabited places and transport networks. The whole territory is available in one single file. This map is characterized by the great number of toponyms of inhabited places.

  • This web service allows viewing the territorial divisions that represent fully recognised Belgian geographical units. The AdminVector dataset encompasses the statistical sectors defined by the FPS Economy, the administrative units maintained by the FPS Finance and their centres, as well as the boundary stones. The datasets of the judicial cantons and judicial districts are built on the basis of their definition in the Judicial Code. The dataset of electoral cantons is built on the basis of its definition in the Electoral Code. The postal cantons dataset is based on the boundaries of the Belgian postal codes managed by bpost.

  • The data set contains a seamless polygonal layer representing the land cover in Belgium for the year 2018. The dataset is INSPIRE compliant.

  • Buildings is the INSPIRE 2D vector data set of the "Constructions" layer originated from the Top10vector product of the National Geographic Institute in Belgium . It includes the "Building" features and the "OtherConstruction" features in accordance with the INSPIRE specifications.

  • The entities included in the dataset represent the Belgian hydrographic network in the sense of the Inspire European directive. The dataset comprises one sole WaterCourseLink class and is in accordance with the INSPIRE specifications. The WaterwayLink class represents, in a linear manner, all of the waterways in the Belgian hydrographic network.
