Modernisation of the National Maps (2001-2021)

Between 2001 and 2021, swisstopo fundamentally modernised the production and appearance of the Swiss national maps. Find out here what this modernisation entails and why it is so important for the future of Swiss geodata. 

Excerpt from the national map in the new design. Among other things, the railroad lines now stand out in red, the font is sans serif and the roads are in different colors depending on their traffic relevance.
