Switzerland is moving

Coordinates are essential to define the location of a point. Because of Switzerland constantly moving, coordinates lose their accuracy over the years. swisstopo checks the changes every six years and thereby ensures that Swiss coordinates remain reliable. This enables, among other things, construction and maintenance of large infrastructure projects, such as the tracks for high-speed trains.
