The data is intended for use by any person for free.

The territorial coverage of the service covers the entire territory of Latvia.

The data is prepared in the form of a Web Map Service (WMS), which is a standard protocol for publishing pre-prepared geographic information on the Internet in the form of mosaic images that can be added to the browser as a background layer.
WMS can be connected as a background card for professional GIS and CAD software - ESRI ArcGIS, Bentley Map, MicroStation v8i, Intergraph Geomedia, MapInfo and others, as well as can be used with open source programs QGIS, GRASS GIS, ProGIS, OpenJUMP and other programs. WMS can also be added to map publishing browsers as separate layers.
WMS is a direct connection to the data holder's database.
The connected services can be connected and disconnected by the WMS user in layers defined by the data preparer.
They cannot be modified, deleted or downloaded.
