The service contains about 2.87 million place name locations with about 3.15 million place names. It contains data from following sources: * Canada (Natural Resources Canada, updated: 02/2018) * Denmark (including Greenland) (SDFE, updated: 05/2017) * Finland (National Land Survey of Finland, updated: 04/2017) * GEBCO Undersea feature names gazetteer (updated: 04/2019) * Iceland (National Land Survey of Iceland, updated: 08/2017) * Norway (Norwegian Mapping Authority, updated: 08/2017) * Russia (Russian Mapping Agency, updated: 04/2019) * Sweden (Swedish National Mapping Agency, updated: 05/2017) * USA (US Geological Survey, updated: 05/2017)
The Arctic SDI Geoportal provides access to geospatial data and services available via the Arctic SDI to support and facilitate monitoring, management and decision making, and support sustainable development in the Arctic. Specifically, the Arctic SDI Geoportal facilitates the discovery, visualization, evaluation, download and integration of geographic data from a variety of sources for the Arctic. The Arctic SDI Geoportal is the result of cooperative efforts between the National Mapping Agencies (NMAs) of the eight Arctic Council Member countries - Canada, Denmark, Finland, Iceland, Norway, Russia, Sweden and the United States. The Arctic SDI Geoportal includes reference data (such as the Arctic SDI basemap or Pan-Arctic Digital Elevation Model) and thematic data from various sources. Thematic data section includes themes such as oceans, climatology and geoscientific information. Most of the data covers the Arctic or the involved Arctic countries, but new data with a smaller or larger geographical extent may be accepted. The Geoportal allows searching placenames via a circumpolar gazetteer, and embedding interactive maps to any website. Some of the features require registration.
The Arctic SDI Topographic Basemap is a WMTS service provided by Arctic SDI - a cooperation between the national mapping agencies in Canada, Denmark, Finland, Iceland, Norway, Russia, Sweden and US. It contains basic topographic information coming from these authoritative data sources:: Canada Centre for Mapping and Earth Observation - National Resources Canada, Danish Agency for Data Supply and Efficiency, National Land Survey of Finland, National Land Survey of Iceland, Norwegian Mapping Authority, Norwegian Polar Institute, Russian Federal Service for State Registration, Cadastre and Mapping, Swedish Mapping, Cadastre and Land Registration Authority and United States Geological Survey.
