Current theme: the 175th anniversary of the Dufour Map: “Map memories” web application

The production of the Dufour Map involved geodesists and topographers as well as countless assistants travelling all over Switzerland. We followed in their footsteps and recorded relevant points along with stories about the creation of the Dufour Map in an interactive web application.

Help us to expand it and continue writing the history of the map. Do you have a personal story in which a map has played an important role? Have you succeeded in taking a great landscape photograph or a photo of a survey marker? Share your "map memory" with us!
