Upgrade of FactPages and FactMaps
06/06/2019 Starting today, we are switching to a new, upgraded version of our FactPages and FactMaps. There will be a three-month transition period, after which the old pages will no longer be available.
The transition period is up to and including 3 October 2019, so that users who download data can reorganise their systems.
See more information about the changes below.
From today through 3 October, new FactPages will be available at:
The old FactPages will be available at this address during the same period: http://factpages.npd.no/
Send comments or report errors to email@example.com
From today through 3 October, new FactMaps will be available at:
The old FactMaps will be available at this address during the same period: http://gis.npd.no/factmaps/html_21/
Both the new and the old version will have associated WMS, WFS and ArcGIS Rest Services available. This also applies to the “old” downloadable files for shape, Filgeodatabase and WKT.
NOTE! From 3 October, only the following address will be available: https://factmaps.npd.no/factmaps/3_0/
- Transfer of data to Excel from table view is now done using xlsx, not xls.

Downloading data from FactPages
The NPD prioritises keeping the “Table view” part of FactPages as backward compatible as possible. For those of you who download data using XML or CSV:
- No existing tags have changed name
- No existing reports have changed name or been deleted
- Table view – new attributes
Below is an overview showing which table views now have new attributes. Reference is made to the Tag name which is used in CSV and XML format.
To see the definition of the various attributes, look under “Attributes” on the respective tabs in Factpages. See e.g. https://factpages.npd.no/default.aspx?culture=nb-no&nav1=wellbore&nav2=Attributes
“Wellbore” / “Table view” / “Exploration” – “All -long list”
“Wellbore”/ “Table view”/”Development”
“Wellbore”/ “Table view”/”Other”
"Surveys"/"Table view"/"Overview surveys"
