Coming soon: free data from Vegvesen


March 1st, ‘Norwegian Public Roads Administration’ (Norwegian Vegvesen) will release a number of data services to provide an interface to object alongside Norwegian roads. Off course, not all information will be provided due to national security or opposition from object owners. These data is not available yet, but the meta data is available today.

Have a look  at the Vegvesen data Directory. This service is just available in Norwegian as I can see.

After a fast overview of the Directory, I found some basic information types such as

  • Roundabouts
  • Junctions
  • Toll places
  • Resting places
  • Turnarounds
  • Tunnels
  • Ferries

And so on…all this information is publically available today, but it will be fun to play with the data through an API in a month or so.

Enjoy!
