On  Kortavefur, the Map Web , you can view Hafnarfjörður and the surroundings in a new light. The map website is a powerful tool to get to know our town better.  Hafnarfjörður is placing more emphasis on digital services and dissemination for the town's residents and other stakeholders. In recent months, a great deal of work has been done on updating, refining, enlarging and strengthening the town's map website, improving its functionality and entering data and information that has only been in PDF documents on the web. The purpose is to further facilitate access to important and popular information graphically in one place.
