Since 2010, geospatial data of Swiss Gov. agencies
can be viewed and accessed over geo.admin.
ch in a fast, free and state of the art manner.
Over 200 datasets are accessed by up to
50’000 users daily.
To initialize a spatial data infrastructure, key
constraints are data management methodologies:
establishment of uniform standards for
data capture and dissemination as well as in the
modeling and archiving of data and metadata.
Those are the fundamentals for interdisciplinary
and international collaboration.
After 3 years of operation, lessons learned
cover Open Source Software: no license cost,
short time to market, scalable, innovative, user
driven, and cost /benefit effective. Open Standards:
interoperability with existing and future
solutions guaranteed. Open Access: Access is
where all content (data) is going. Where ever
possible data, data services and application
programming interface including sources were
made public available – open government data
portal opendata.admin.ch. In the talk we will leverage why open data & code is crucial to
science. Technology has changed the nature of
experimentation, data, and communication. On
the other hand we will show how to deal with
the main barrier: Copyright of Gov. data and
data generated by scientist.

  • Geosharing 2013 Bern geo.admin.ch Geoportal of the Swiss Confederation 3 years of successful data sharing for the masses – best practice David.Oesch@swisstopo.ch Federal Office of Topography swisstopo
  • SHARING in science ???
  • one study (alawi 2011): 9% of paper AUTHORS studied MADE DATA AVAILABLE
  • has science a CREDIBILITY crisis ?
  • 1 GEO SHARING
  • it is about OPENDATA
  • OPEN DATA is data that can be freely used, SHARED and built-on by anyone, anywhere, for any purpose. http://blog.okfn.org/2013/10/03/defining-open-data/
  • not a new CONCEPT for science…
  • rooted in SCEPTICISM transparancey , knowledge transfer
  • TECHNOLOGY has CHANGED nature of experimentation, data and communication
  • imporatance of open OPEN CODE
  • “really REPRODUCIBLE research” (Claerbout) more by @victoriastodden http://new.livestream.com/accounts/5389255/okcon
  • is Swiss GOVERNMENT sharing?
  • OPENDATA.ADMIN.CH pilot several federal agencies e-gov strategy movement
  • GEO is delivered by the federal spatial data infrastructure FSDI
  • 2 GEO SHARING
  • CHALLENGES for YOU as a user?
  • 4 frictions FORMAT PRICE RIGHTS ACCESSIBILITY @twbell http://strata.oreilly.com/2013/10/the-four-frictions.html
  • the SWISS WAY to deal with it
  • FEDERAL ACT ON GEOINFORMATION (GEOIG), 1. July 2008 Art. 1 Aim This Act has the aim of ensuring that geodata relating to the territory of the Swiss Confederation is made available for general use to the authorities of the Confederation, the cantons and communes, the private sector, the public and to academic and scientific institutions in a sustainable, up-todate, rapid and easy manner, in the required quality and at a reasonable cost.
  • realized with GEO.ADMIN.CH the geoportal of the Swiss Confederation
  • geodata are NOT yet OPEN but FREELY ACCESIBLE
  • 300,000 VISITORS last 3 years 250,000 200,000 DESKTOP 150,000 100,000 50,000 0 MOBILE
  • 2011 vs 2012 map mobile wms wmts .geo.admin.ch +45% +360% +43% +132% visitors .map.geo.admin.ch .geo.admin.ch .geo.admin.ch requests requests visitors
  • LESSONS learned?
  • 3 MAP LITERACY
  • DATA logger/book != GIS dataset != screen PRESENTATION
  • a MAP is ONE FORM of geodata REPRESENTATION /sharing
  • EFFECTIVE but has its CAVEATS
  • not only « SHARING DATA » but « SHARING INFORMATION »
  • agency: « we need to publish DATA » INTERNET : « geodata are MAPS » CITIZEN : « I need an INFORMATION » GOV
  • Is the PRODUCER able to CREATE a map ? Is the USER able to READ a map ?
  • http://s.geo.admin.ch/c50ed2b85
  • «same same but different?» http://s.geo.admin.ch/e3cd650e6
  • reduce COMPLEXITY with STORYTELLING
  • http://storymaps.geo.admin.ch/storymaps/storymap1/
  • http://storymaps.geo.admin.ch/storymaps/storymap4/
  • MAP LITERACY interpreting information behind a map
  • 4 SHARING DATA MEANS ALSO …
  • OPEN SOURCE SOFTWARE and OPEN CODE « your data will stay but your software will go away »
  • OPEN STANDARDS to ensure INTEROPERABILITY
  • open METADATA to ensure « SOURCE CRITICISM » …data is useless without it…
  • 5 DOWNLOAD OR SERVICE
  • both BUT 47
  • EVERYTHING is a CACHE as long as you are not the owner of the data 48 http://blog.ping13.net/open-data-services.html
  • It’s about data consumer RESPONSIBILITY and ETHOS 49
  • attribute REFERENCE TIME STAMP and UPDATE third party published data 50
  • access to GEO.ADMIN.CH data ? 51
  • 99% SERVICE 1% DOWNLOAD 52
  • 1 2 3 OPENDATA. OPENACCESS. MAP LITERACY. 4 5 ! METADATA. CACHE. SHARE.
