The TopoMapViewer is a free, responsive web application that allows you to view NGI's standard topographic maps. In our viewer you can access the following layers:

  • the 'TOPO' layer, as well as the 'OVERLAY' layer with the orthophotos as background;
  • the layers 'Top50Map', 'Landcover100Map' and 'Top250Map' (all coming from the TopoMaps WMS), as well as a layer containing the old topographic maps at scale 1:10 000. The latter will be replaced by the layer 'Top25Map' once the entire Belgian territory is covered;
  • an orthophoto layer from the Orthophoto WMS.

Of these layers you can retrieve legends (if applicable), there are always links to more information and the underlying metadata is also available.

User-friendliness and simplicity are key to making the TopoMapViewer as accessible as possible for any type of device. As a user, you can always take distance measurements, share the map image with others or save a print version as a PDF.
