Belgian Hydrography Network - Top10VectorNational Geographic Institute
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.
Belgian road network - Top10VectorNational Geographic Institute
Top10Vector - Road network is the vector data set of the Belgian road network. It contains five classes. First class: dirt roads. Second class: kilometer markers along the road network. Third class: path segments. Fourth class: road obstructions. Fifth class: road segments. This data set aimt at representing the surface area of the road network on the Belgian territory and is not designed for route calculations. This data set can be bought via the corresponding hyperlink.
Belgian administrative units - AdminVectorNational Geographic Institute
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.
Address points Belgium - BeST AddressNational Geographic Institute
Location of the address points on the Belgian territory. The result is obtained by merging the three regions on the basis of an XML file which has been supplied to BOSA for the BestAdres project.
Belgian Postal DistrictsNational Geographic Institute
This data set contains the latest version of the borders of the Belgian postal codes, including the "special" postal codes (0612, 1049, 6099,…).
Topographic vector data Belgium -Top10VectorNational Geographic Institute
Top10Vector is the National Geographic Institute’s series of topographic vector data. The data set contains 37 feature classes, which are divided into eight themes (road network, railroad network, power grid, constructions, land use and vegetation, local relief and particular zones), all of which can be obtained separately.
TopoMapViewerNational Geographic Institute
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 CartoWeb.be '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.
eTOD dataset of aeronautical obstaclesNational Geographic Institute
Vector dataset of aeronautical obstacles with a height of 60 meters or more above the ground. The update of this dataset takes place on a multi-year cycle; for each obstacle and for each location, the situation is indicated as applicable at the time of its last update. Based on the horizontal range of an obstacle, it is classified into one of three classes: polygonal obstacle if the smallest rectangular area enclosing the obstacle has a length and width of more than 100 meters; line obstacle if the smallest rectangular area enclosing the obstacle has a length of more than 100 meters, but a width of less than 100 meters; point obstruction in other cases.
