All the buildings from the product swissBUILDINGS3D cover a surface of 497 km2, that is just a little bit more than the surface of the canton of Obwalden (491 km2). The canton of Basel Stadt is the canton with the highest density of buildings. Over 16 percent of its surface is covered with buildings. The lowest density of buildings can be found in the mountain cantons Grison, Uri and Valais where the buildings only cover half a percent of the surface of the canton.
