It includes two of the largest cities in Finland, the capital Helsinki and the second largest city Espoo.

Parts of the city of Vantaa is also included in this graticule, but majority of it is in a graticule of it's own. Finland's largest airport, the Helsinki-Vantaa airport is situated in this graticule. Majority of this graticule consists of rural area, with some larger urban settlements such as Kirkkonummi, Hämeenlinna and Vihti.
