basemap.at is a project aiming at offering an up-to-date and harmonized web base map for the whole state of Austria, which is primarily based on administrative data. To ensure compatibility to other web mapping services it will be implemented as a WMTS in Web Mercator (Auxiliary Sphere). It will be published as CC-BY 3.0 AT - a widely known and easily understandable license, which allows the distribution of the map for private and commercial use at no charge.
The paper focuses on the technical implementation, as well as the cartographic challenges in connection with creating such a web base map.
