Geographical information in the CartoCiudad Data Base is the result from integration and harmonization of cartographical and geographical information from:

-         The National Cartographic Bata Base 1:25.000 (BCN25)

-         Regional Cartographic Data Bases 1:10.000 and 1:5.000

-         The Urban Cadastral Cartographic Data Base

-         Statistical units, street names and addresses from the official statistical Census and Local Authorities.

-         Post codes from Post Office

Geographic Information stored at the CartoCiudad Data Server is one of the data servers accessible at the Spanish NSDI (IDEE). Users and value added services providers can use these data through different OGC services (WMS, WFS, CWS, Gaz,)
