The Estonian Basic Map is a seamless digital topographic database with a nationwide coverage. It contains information on utilities (roads, electric power lines, etc.), settlement, hydrography, place names and land use. The accuracy and content corresponds to the mapping scale of 1:5000- 1:10 000. The used projection is L-EST97 (epsg:3301).

Data is available in following formats: vector (MapInfo TAB, ESRI Shape or GDB), color or monochrome raster (GeoTIFF). In total there are 2083 map sheets (5*5km each).

The map is updated once a year (in whole) and the latest,  2019 version, is made from 8.12.2018 database dump. The map is based on the core Estonian Topographic Database, which is updated on a daily basis by the Land Board's employees.
