The Helsinki metropolitan area service map shows public services available in Helsinki and the rest of the metropolitan area and how to reach them. It is also compatible with mobile phones.
The information includes contact details, traffic connections, information on accessibility, as well as event information. Clicking on an address on the map template shows what district or service area the service location belongs to, and what other services are available in the area.
Personalise your map
The user can choose from several means of transport, including walking, bicycling, public transport and private car. The route to the destination is shown on the map, complete with information on ongoing roadwork. You can also display written route instructions and the map can be switched to a guide map or aerial photo.
A high-contrast version of the service map is available for users with poor eyesight. The map can also be accessed via terminal devices designed for the visually impaired.
The user can choose accessibility settings on the map. If the user indicates that he or she will be taking a pushchair, using a wheeled walker or wheelchair, is visually impaired or hard of hearing, the map will display any accessibility issues related to the recommended route and the service location sought. The user can obtain advance information on accessing the service location’s entrance, whether the entrance is accessible, what types of elevators and toilets are available, and whether the service location has appropriate lighting and signage.
