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.
