  • The Solar Ultraviolet - Visible Irradiance Monitoring network (SUVIM) is formed of observation stations operated by the Royal Belgian Institute for Space Aeronomy (IASB-BIRA). At each station, UV solar radiation is measured by several instruments. The network produces UV indices, solar irradiances and ancillary measurements such as meteorological conditions at the stations in quasi-real time. The SUVIM Station Network dataset includes information on the stations. It does not include the measured data, which form the SUVIM Observations dataset.

  • This web service allows viewing CORINE High Resolution Layers Belgium covering the Belgian territory within the framework of a Pan-European coverage. This service is compliant with the INSPIRE specifications.

  • The product is made of 6 "high resolution layers" covering all the Belgian territory as part of a European-wide coverage. The 6 layers concern 6 distinct themes: Imperviousness, Tree cover density, Forest type, Permanent grasslands, Wetlands and Permanent waterbodies. The 6 layers were produced by an automatic classification based on satellite images and collateral data and achieved by private companies (EEA service providers), and they were verified and enhanced by Belgium. At the Belgian level, verification and enhancements were made by AGIV for the northern part and SPW for the southern part. The NGI coordinated the project.

  • This webservice allows viewing a digital surface model. It is a homogeneous and regular points grid which indicates the height above the surface of the earth, either the soil or any other permanent and visible element in the landscape (vegetation, construction,…). These data represent the situation of the landscape resulting from the July 2021 floods in het areas of the Vesdre, of part of the Meuse downstream from Liège and of the Demer. The heights are given relative to the Belgian zero level (fictitious zero of Uccle). The data have a resolution (size of the meshes of the regular grid) of 20 cm.

  • Riparian zones represent transitional areas occurring between land and freshwater ecosystems, characterised by distinctive hydrology, soil and biotic conditions and strongly influenced by the stream water. They provide a wide range of riparian functions (e.g. chemical filtration, flood control, bank stabilization, aquatic life and riparian wildlife support, etc.) and ecosystem services. The Riparian Zones products will support the objectives of several European legal acts and policy initiatives, such as the EU Biodiversity Strategy to 2020, the Habitats and Birds Directives and the Water Framework Directive. Two complementary product groups provide detailed information on the state and characteristics of riparian zones across Belgium: 1. Land Cover / Land Use (LCLU) 2. Green Linear Elements (GLE)

  • 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.

  • 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.

  • This web service allows viewingdatasets from bpost.

  • The Copernicus Urban Atlas (UA) provides European, comparable and detailed land use and land cover maps for the main Functional Urban Areas (FUAs). The Urban Atlas Street Tree Layer (UA-STL) is a separate layer of the Urban Atlas 2012. It includes contiguous rows or patches of trees covering 500 m² or more with a minimum width of 10 m within the urban mask of the Urban Atlas 2012. Gaps between tree patches or within a larger patch that are less than 10m wide are included in the Street Tree Layer. There is no thematic content other than the presence or absence of trees. The UA-STL is a new product and no accuracy threshold was provided as part of the Urban Atlas specifications. The UA STL product validated currently covers just over 7% of the total UA2012 area.

  • The entities included in the dataset represent the Belgian road transport network in the sense of the Inspire European directive. The dataset comprises several classes. The RoadLink class represents, in a linear manner, all of the road links between each pair of dots for the network considered. The footpaths, cycle paths or carriageways that connect the pairs of dots correspond to as many entities in the class. The RoadServiceArea class represents the sections of space devoted to auxiliary road transport functions, such as service stations or rest areas. In addition to this are two classes without geometry. RoadWidth class describes in metres the width of each segment of the "road links" class. The "functional importance" class ranks the segments of the "road links" class by functional importance on the road transport network.
