Comments

The NGI has provided a mapviewer application to show the different layers of their maps as requested in these global census. However it not yet available in a downloadable open format for the whole of Belgium, nor is it available for non-commercial use.

We do have to nuance that these maps are openly available for Flanders and Brussels on http://www.geopunt.be/catalogus thanks to the Open Data Policy of Flanders.
