Iceland 100K Topo Maps

Decollared topo maps are freely available for Iceland from the National Land Survey of Iceland. After you enter your name and email on the Iceland site you will get a link to the maps. Raster maps are available at the 50K, 100K, and 250K resolutions. The 50K maps are in Black and White so I choose to download 100K maps. The 100K maps use the EPSG3057 Iceland ISN93 grid. The maps can be converted to other formats using MAPC2MAPC. The current version (June 2017) of MAPC2MAPC does not directly support this grid so you need to add it manually. To do this proceed as follows:

  • In the Oruxmaps program folder there is a file "m2grids.txt"
  • Use an editor like Notepad to add this line to it
  • EPSG3057 Iceland ISN93,WGS 84,2,65,-19,500000,500000,1,0,7,7,64.25,65.75
  • Depending on your system you may need to save it elsewhere then copy back to the program folder.
  • Then open the TIF or TFW and on the TFW Parameters panel, and scroll down to select EPSG3057

Iceland is covered by 91 topo maps, with KORT 2 being the NW corner, and KORT 115 the SE. Kort means Map in Icelandic. Map numbers increase down and then across, e.g. KORT58 is below (south) of KORT57.
