The more, the better

The current network of geodetic points in Switzerland has been operated by swisstopo for 30 years. These points form the reference frame for all surveys carried out in the country. Repeatedly monitoring a point over several years shows whether and in which direction a region of Switzerland may be moving. The collected data simplifies the monitoring of natural hazards such as earthquakes or landslides.
