Current information

DLM250 available as updated version
The Digital Landscape Model 1:250 000 (DLM250) of the Authoritative Topographic-Cartographic Information System (ATKIS) is available as updated version which has also been adjusted to the AFIS-ALKIS-ATKIS data model (AAA).

The changes in the datasets regard the annual top updates of the feature types with capital importance and the capture of new features and attributes in the theme settlement, traffic and water bodies. In addition, a compacting and a further approach to the acquisition criteria according to the GeoInfoDok were achieved.

The dataset is released as compact dataset in NAS structure DLM250 (Compact) and in the level structure as DLM250 (Levels) with extended content.

The INSPIRE Directive
All EU member countries are obliged to provide their spatial data for the themes of INSPIRE Annex I in a compliant and interoperable way since that date. The Federal Agency for Cartography and Geodesy (BKG) has fulfilled this legal obligation for its spatial data products in time. INSPIRE-compliant spatial data is now available throughout Germany for the medium scale range, i.e. approximately in the scale 1:250,000, for the following INSPIRE themes:
  • Administrative Units (INSPIRE AU) derived from the Administrative Areas 1:250,000 (VG250),
  • Hydrography (INSPIRE HY), Transport Networks (INSPIRE TN) and Protected Sites (INSPIRE PS) derived from the Digital Landscape Model 1:250,000 (DLM250),
  • Geographical Names (INSPIRE GN) derived from the Geographical Names 1:250,000 (GN250) – this spatial data has been INSPIRE-compliant (and available) since 2015 but has now been updated,
  • Land Cover (INSPIRE LC) derived from CORINE Land Cover 10 ha (CLC10).
From now on, the BKG Service Center provides the spatial data as Open Data via INSPIRE-compliant download services (WFS) and view services (WMS). A separate area has been set up on its Webseite

Furthermore, the INSPIRE services of BKG can also be searched in the German Geoportal: www.geoportal.de

The implementation of INSPIRE in BKG focused not only on the fulfillment of its legal mandate, but also on the active contribution to the INSPIRE Directive for interoperable spatial data across Europe. Therefore, the competence center and service provider of the Federal Government for geoinformation and geodetic reference systems has implemented not only the minimum requirements of INSPIRE. Especially, the results of the European Location Framework (ELF) project carried out in the framework of EuroGeographics were applied in order to use all the experience gained in harmonisation and edge matching of European geospatial reference data so far (www.elfproject.eu).

Technical details for the implementation of the INSPIRE services of BKG are available in the following presentation: Please click here (PDF, 433KB).

With the successful INSPIRE implementation, BKG is interested in how the INSPIRE-compliant spatial data is used. Any feedback from users is welcome. For the year 2018, the implementation of other spatial data for the themes of INSPIRE Annexes II and III – in particular Elevation (INSPIRE EL) and Statistical Units (INSPIRE SU) – is next up on the agenda.
