Permit for dissemination of geographical data

Do you have a drone equipped with a camera? Or do you work with aerial photographs or collection of other types of geographical information from the air? Remember to check which rules apply before you distribute your material!

If you want to publish, sell or share material depicting Sweden from the air, you need to apply for a distribution permit from us. The purpose is to protect information that is important for Sweden’s total defence.

Lantmäteriet only handles permits for material depicting land areas. If your material contains images of the sea, you may also need to apply for a dissemination permit from the Swedish Maritime Administration (new window).
