Geodata Services

SIS Maps is a free and innovative service which helps with the provision of geodata and supports the work of the research community. We offer a large spectrum of specialist information and advice, e.g. on selecting suitable data and data formats, on defining the required target area or on determining various factors such as scale, resolution and content. These parameters may influence, e.g. the price of the geodata you wish to acquire.

SIS Maps and the Map Department maintain an extensive list of contacts of specialized trade dealers – if you are in search of a geodata provider, you may use these contacts for your negotiations.          

SIS Maps does not acquire geodata, it primarily establishes contact to geodata providers.

For detailed information regarding advice on geodata and its provision see our FAQ.
