Citizen’s MapSite

The National Land Survey of Finland has relaunched its map site. Some thoughts and URL reverse engineering follow.

I’ve been a user of the Citizen’s MapSite (Kansalaisen karttapaikka) ever since it was launched sometime in the late 90’s. While it used to require a registration, the new version works without one. Which is just as well, as there wasn’t any sensible reason why the registration was required. It also appears that it doesn’t require you to access it from a Finnish address anymore either. I’d like to know if it can be accessed from other countries.
