This dataset contains the Belgian judicial districts and cantons, within the boundaries established by the annexes of the Judicial Code. Each judicial canton has a justice of the peace, which is also included in this dataset.
Top10Vector – Rail network is the data set of the railway network in Belgium. This data set includes three classes. First class: rail network kilometre markers. Second class: railway stop. Third class: railway track segments. This data set can be bought via the corresponding hyperlink.
Top10Vector – High tension network is the vector data set of the high tension network in Belgium. It includes two classes. First class: high tension line segments. Second class: power pylons. This data set can be bought via the corresponding hyperlink.
Under the territorial divisions are grouped different datasets 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 districts is built on the basis of its definition in the Electoral Code. The dataset of the postal districts contains the boundaries of the Belgian postcodes managed by bpost.
MapIndex is a regular grid of rectangular (first level) or square (second level) cells coded with alphanumeric characters. It has been defined for the Belgian territory and allows geolacating several events. The present version is a beta version which is submitted to the emergency services. It will evolve to a standard cartographic grid.
The Royal Observatory of Belgium maintains several continuously observing GNSS tracking stations in Belgium. The stations are also belonging to EUREF Permanent Network (EPN) used to maintain the ETRS89 and the observation data are available to the public through https://doi.org/10.24414/FST8-P256.
The entities included in the dataset represent the physical network in the sense of the Inspire European directive. The dataset comprises several classes and is in accordance with the INSPIRE specifications. The Wetland class represents poorly drained or periodically flooded portions of land, the soil of which is saturated with water but where vegetation is nevertheless able to develop. The StandingWater class represents flooded areas that are, nevertheless, completely surrounded by land.
Top10Vector – Hydrography is the data set of the Belgian hydrography. This data set includes six classes. First class: waterway kilometre markers of the Belgian navigable waterways. Second class: watercourse surfaces. Third class: watercourse segments. Fourth class: water points, which means points where the water arrives at the surface or disappears into the subsoil. Fifth class: wetlands, which means zones where the soil is saturated or regularly flooded. Sixth class: water surfaces. This data set can be bought via the corresponding hyperlink.
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.
AdminVector is the vector data set of Belgian administrative and statistical units. It includes various classes. First class: Belgian statistic sectors as defined by the FPS Economy. Second class: municipal sections, with no unanimous definition. The five following classes correspond to official administrative units as managed by the FPS Finance. Other classes are added to these classes, like border markers or the Belgian maritime zone. The boundaries of the seven first classes are consolidated together in order to keep the topological cohrence of the objects. This data set can be freely downloaded.
