The open infrastructure data is used in various ways by different instances in society. The report on the utilisation of open infrastructure data prepared at the beginning of the year has provided a lot of valuable information on the amount and purposes of using the route information.

Companies are the largest user group that stands out from the rest. The business of many companies is based on open infrastructure data that is used in a variety of applications. Other distinct user groups are central government agencies and institutions, individuals and representatives of regional and local administration.

The majority of respondents find the route information to be very useful. It is used especially in research and development, to support management and decision-making, in transport system operations, asset management, and the maintenance of the transport network.
