Vbase includes all roads that can be driven (more than 50 metres long) and roadblocks, represented as centreline geometry and point geometry respectively. The dataset also includes address information (which provides an option for linking to the Cadastre and other registers), traffic zoning operations and footpaths and cycle paths. The dataset has a high level of network topology and covers mainland Norway, delimited by the national borders with Sweden, Finland and Russia. Vbase is thematised according to road types and attributes. The deliverable is made up of county files and files by municipality.
