  • This layer displays the latest aerial image (orthophoto) available. An orthophoto represents a mosaic composed of digital aerial photographs geometrically rectified (orthorectified) and georeferenced in the LUREF national coordinate system. The digital orthophotos of the Grand Duchy are managed in the BD-L-ORTHO database which covers the entire territory of the Grand Duchy of Luxembourg and are accessible both on the national geoportal and on the open data portal (data.public.lu). Since 2016, ACT has carried out an annual survey of the entire country. Other aerial images are available under General public> Land cover> Aerial and satellite images.

  • A topographic map is intended to be a representation of the terrain. It differs from thematic maps (city maps, road maps etc.) by the richness of its content, its high precision and above all the representation of the topography by the contour lines. The cadastre and topography administration publishes topographic maps at the scales of 1:5,000, 1:20,000, 1:50,000, 1:100,000 and 1:250,000.

  • The hybrid map uses the most recent aerial image as background. In addition, it contains roads, street names and locality names.

  • The road map is a multi-scale digital map that contains transport networks, buildings, vegetation and hydrology. It is updated monthly and the new roads are entered at the same time as the changes on the cadastral plan. The road map uses vector tile technology, which gives you new possibilities to display the road map. The style editor gives you the choice between 3 editing modes: - Choose a predefined style: This editing mode provides you with a list of predefined colour palettes, which you can use to colour the map. - Modify the main colors: In this mode you can select an individual colour by theme. You also have the option of activating or deactivating a theme by checking the box. Advanced possibilities: This mode allows you to adapt the style of your map without restrictions. Using the Maputnik external style editor (https://maputnik.github.io/), you can make all kinds of modifications. When you are done editing, you can upload your style. The settings remain stored in your browser. When you are logged in, they are loaded into your profile so that they can be reused on another computer. Of course, the settings can also be used to create a custom background map and integrate it into your own website.

  • This layer shows the restaurants open during the crises, and offering delivery and/or take away. It will be regularly updated based on the information we are getting through editus. If you manage a restaurant that offers delivery or take-away that is not on the map, please contact editus: https://www.partenaire-marketing.lu/fr/editus-initiatives-covid-19

  • Luxembourg now has only one landfill for non-hazardous waste intended for the disposal of household, bulky and similar waste.

  • The Environment Agency has commissioned a specialized and approved external expert to carry out sound level measurements at 10 selected immission points. The aim of the mission was to measure the sound pressure at a measurement point representative of each zone or potential quiet oasis, with the aim of characterising this type of zone in more detail and determining the impact by road traffic noise or other noises. These areas represent potential areas for recreation and resourcing that are regularly used by local people and tourists. For the measurement and calculation methods, the external expert used the standards ISO 1996-1: 2016 and ISO 1996-2: 2017.

  • Biowaste consists of biodegradable garden or park waste, food or kitchen waste from households, restaurants, caterers or retail stores, as well as comparable waste from food processing plants. Biowaste with a high water content, especially kitchen waste or food industry waste, is best suited for anaerobic digestion. The treatment of organic waste in anaerobic digestion plants makes it possible to produce biogas as well as a residue that can be used as a soil amendment.

  • Biowaste consists of biodegradable garden or park waste, food or kitchen waste from households, restaurants, caterers or retail stores, as well as comparable waste from food processing plants. Drier waste such as garden and park waste is best suited for composting. In composting facilities, organic waste is transformed by aerobic degradation into a product (compost) which can be used as a soil amendment.
