A geographical map of the country including national traffic routes, stretches of water, and markings of heights. The map must at least be provided at a scale of 1:250,000 (1 cm = 2.5km). Geographic information is instrumental for many use cases, including the mapping of unemployment statistics or demographics, as well as journey planning. See our methodology section for more information.
The submitter assessed the usability of the data as follows (3 - little to no effort needed, 1 - extensive effort needed): 3

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.
