For maps is referred to the map
room of TU Delft. Here you can also access the TOP10NL maps
in DWG format. TOP50
and TP10 in other formats are only accessible via TU Delft or VU
login system. The map room has a
paper collection of nautical maps.
A detailed elevation map of the Netherlands is available via ahn.nl For the height of an individual location, use the postcodetool. One can make profiles inside the elevation map, using the profile tool.
For all kind of land use in the Netherlands a central access point is pdok (Publieke Dienstverlening op de Kaart), giving information about administrative boundaries, habitats, agriculture, infrastructure etc.). For assessment of risks in the Netherlands info can be found at the Risicokaart.
On-line hydrographic maps are available via various websites.
- A nice website with an on-line hydrographic map of the world can be found at: https://webapp.navionics.com .
- Several European organisations have produced https://portal.emodnet-bathymetry.eu/. This site is limited to European waters, but has also the option to generate profiles. Especially in combination with Swan this is an interesting option.
- An open source hydrographic chart is https://map.openseamap.org.
- Hydrographic maps from NOAA (US waters) are available via https://nosimagery.noaa.gov/rnc/NOAA_RNCs.kmz. This file opens in Google Earth (has to be installed on your computer). You see a world map with all NOAA maps. Zoom in on the area, find your map, click on the boundary of the map. In the popup you find a number of options, e.g. a preview (shows the map) or a collared preview (shows the map on Google Earth).
