See our methodology section for more information.

Reviewer comments

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: for the Federation and 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.
