NVE Temakart (Theme Map) is our recommended entry for data from NVE. You'll find an NVE Temakart for most of our data; watercourse, flood, avalanche, hydro and wind power, grid installation, hydrological station, quick clay and much, much more. The map works well on mobile phone and PC. Here are some of the possibilities in the map solution (BETA version):
- 2D/3D landscape and buildings
- Share your map with others
- Create and save your own map
- Draw in map, choose symbol/colours
- Go to GPS location
- Measure distance/area
  (3D provides height difference)
- Print/create pdf documents
- Do analyzes based on your drawings, or subjects in the map (eg: how many people live in marked area?)
