The metropolitan area service map has been rebuilt in January

Looking for the city’s neighbourhood services? – you can find them accessibly in one place on the service map. The metropolitan area service map has been rebuilt in January and its use has been made easier. The objective of the rebuilding was, above all, to improve the accessibility and the findability of the data.

The new service map works with a screen reader and the data of the service is presented with simplicity and clarity in mind. The search functions of the service map have also been developed and its map and data can be viewed in a monochrome view, which for many is an easier way to understand and observe data.

All the public services of the metropolitan area in one place

The service map compiles all the information on how to reach the public services in the metropolitan area, such as contact information and opening hours. The accessibility data is also included for part of the service units. The service map includes both city service units and private services, such as restaurants, sports premises and stores.

If you are looking for a specific service unit, try the search. If you want to explore the services in your neighbourhood, browse the services from the menu.

Use examples:

• You are interested in the Chinese language and you are looking for schools teaching Chinese on the A1 level. Write A1 in the search box of the service map. You will already be offered search suggestions, of which you can choose A1 Chinese. As search results, you will get a list of the schools offering courses in A1 Chinese.
• You have bought a new flat on Itäinen Brahenkatu 11 and you want to find out, which school is closest to your home. Write your address in the search box of the service map and choose the “Areas” tab. You will then see a list of all the Finnish and Swedish comprehensive schools.

The service map looks up its data from four open public sector interfaces. All the data of the service map is also available as open data. The service can also be used on the smartphone.
