What data is expected?

See our methodology section for more information.

location http://www.katastar.ba/geoportal/preglednik/ - FGO Geoportal, href="http://www.geoportal.rgurs.org/geoportal/" http://www.geoportal.rgurs.org/geoportal/">rel="nofollow">http://www.geoportal.rgurs.org/geoportal/ - Geospatial Portal Description of available data for the Federation also here http://www.katastar.ba/servisi Srpska portal seems very buggy.

As I understand, Bosnia and Herzegovina has 2 main entities: Republika Srpska and the Federation of Bosnia and Herzegovina that govern themselves. Thus, there are 2 official geoportals: http://www.katastar.ba/geoportal/preglednik/ for the Federation and http://www.geoportal.rgurs.org/geoportal/ for Srpska. They run on different systems and have different layers and categories. With respect to the national maps theme, I have to chose data is not available online as the Srpska geoportal has been unresponsive for a period of 2 weeks, during this review. Except the OSM layer, I could not see any topographic map or ortophoto.
