The Norwegian Petroleum Directorate’s interactive FactMaps contain information on wells, surveys, fields and discoveries, production licences, agreement-based areas, permanent facilities and more.
The FactMaps are closely integrated with the FactPages, and are also in use in the Oil Facts app and the website Norwegianpetroleum.no.
The FactMaps are offered as two editions, one Standard (HTML5) and one Advanced (Silverlight). The Advanced Edition gives you the opportunity to filter, query, add your own data or services, re-symbolize and more. For mobile devices we recommend the Standard Edition, a simpler viewer with query functionality.
The FactMaps can be used e.g. to create illustrative maps, but also embedment in your own services/web pages. The FactMaps search engine engine makes it easy to create links to the FactMaps from other internet or intranet pages, check out TIPS - FactMapsSearch.
The FactMaps are offered as following map services: ArcGIS REST API Map Service, Web Map Service (WMS) og Web Feature Service (WFS) according to ISO 19128:2005 (OGC:WMS, OGS:WFS). URL for WMS/WFS: http://gis.npd.no/ogc/factmaps/2_0.
The services make it easy to include the content of the FactMaps in your own GIS tools. In addition we offer downloadable geographical data through the NPD FactPages > Geographical Datasets.
We will in a transition phase maintain the old FactMaps and corresponding map service in parallel with the new ones. The old FactMaps is available here. For more information on the corresponding WMS we refer to http://npdwms.npd.no. You can still find the Version 2.0 of the Standard FactMaps here.
Please send an email to email@example.com if you have problems, suggestions or other comments regarding the new FactMaps clients and/or services, or questions related to phasing out the old ones.
