New bathymetric data

Two new lakes published, the Lake of Brienz and the Lake of Joux: the product swissBATHY3D contains bathymetric data in the form of a very accurate digital elevation model that describes the topography of the Swiss lakebeds.


Swiss Map Vector – The National Maps of Switzerland in vector form

Take advantage of the vector data and create your own individual map. The data is editable. By turning off or otherwise symbolising individual objects or classes, specific changes can be made to a map. This allows your own topic to be optimally presented.

Space and time

Between 1860 and 1887, the first official map of the Confederation, the Dufour Map, was brought closer to the basement. Researchers crossed the Central Plateau, the Alps and the Jura to produce a geological map of Switzerland at a scale of 1:100,000.
