The database contains professionally revised field- and house names collected by professionals or volunteers including additional data from the collection forms as well as the collected multimedia data. Visitors to the web portal can view and download all available data.

All collected and entered data are subsequently available for to the general public and can be downloaded and used for private, cultural, touristic and scientific purposes.
The interactive presentation of the spatial data happens by the means of free web mapping applications – at the present the portal operate with OSM, basemap (only for Austria) and google satellite. The quality, completeness and actuality of the portal are based on the ongoing supplement and extension of the available data on the part of the users as well as on the maintenance of the data base and the possible supplementation of background maps.
