In 2013 Tartu City Government decided to open up the geo-archive for the citizens. Citizens need to authenticate themselves online with ID card or Mobile ID to get access to geo-archive citizen interface that allows them to view the data on underground infrastructures pertaining to their real estate. It shows all the necessary pipes and electricity a real estate owner needs to see for example before ordering some construction works on their premises.

Since all the data was previously available only for the city officials, it is now much easier to get underground information about your real estate without any bureaucracy. It saves lots of time both for the citizens and city officials who previously had to with citizens' queries about their own real estate.
