MapSearch and place-names from Lantmäteriet

Lantmäteriet's own map service allows you to view maps, aerial photographs and place names. In addition, you can print your own map. It gives you easy access to Lantmäteriet's maps, without having to use GIS software. If you want to publish maps, the same terms applies as when you download maps and data through GET.
