The Topographic Map Series is the uniform, topographic description of the Federal Republic of Germany. We have integrated the following scales into the Layer Topo:
1:1 000 000
The survey departments of the individual states are responsible for the TK25, TK50 and TK100. The TK250 and TK1000 are provided by the Federal Office itself.

ATKIS Basis-DLM is the data basis for the Outdooractive map in Germany.
ATKIS = official topographic cartographic information system
DLM = digital landscape model
The basic DLM describes the topographic objects of the landscape and the relief of the earth's surface in vector format. In this data set, the geometries and attributes are recorded independent of scale and image. This product is maintained and updated by the individual survey administrations of the federal states - the BKG defines a uniform structure for data delivery.

The Outdooractive map is based on official geodata. A defined and prepared route network for all activities as well as relevant tourist information from our partners deliver reliable route planning and orientation once you are on site.
The digital hiking trail network is a valuable planning tool. It not only shows you where officially signposted hiking and long-distance hiking trails run, but also helps you to work out the optimal route to take.
