Top 5 New Features


Live Maps Finland now has the 3D view activated. This allows viewing the world in all dimensions, gives access to near-real-time weather and a growing number of 3D cities around the globe. Bird’s Eye overlay allows overlying the 3D view with our real bird’s eye photography.

Explore Collections

It is now possible to explore collections on Live Maps Finland. Collections are user generated content that is collected from all over the web. Zoom in and click on “Kokoelma” to view all areas of interest on the map.


Users can now not only share map links in mail but also publish them to their blog with just one click.

Walking Directions

The routing engine now allows the creation of walking directions which gives you the quickest way suitable for pedestrians.  

Hill-shaded maps

In the road view the new hill-shaded maps style gives a good impression of the terrain. And it looks much nicer, too J
