  2. 2. Federal Office of Topography swisstopo COSIG Federal Office of Topography swisstopo • Federal Geo-Information center • 321 employees • Producer of the swiss national maps • Operator of the swiss Federal Spatial Data Infrastructure (FSDI) • Provider of about 80 geoservices and web mapping applications federated under «geo.admin.ch: the geoportal of the Swiss Confederation» www.swisstopo.admin.ch – www.geo.admin.ch
  3. 3. Federal Office of Topography swisstopo COSIG Agenda • Geo.admin.ch • Analysis of map.geo.admin.ch • Redesign of map.geo.admin.ch
  4. 4. Federal Office of Topography swisstopo COSIG geo.admin.ch: the geoportal of the Swiss Confederation The federal geodata portal is a publicly accessible platform for geographical information, data and services. Geographical information consists of geographically and spatially referenced data. It describes the characteristics of a country or region in the form of coordinates and place names.
  5. 5. Federal Office of Topography swisstopo COSIG Geo.admin.ch: Geoinformation Act The Geoinformation Act (GeoIG) came into force on 1st July 2008. It provides the legal framework, for all activities relating to information about basic geodata of Federal law and its exchange and use.
  6. 6. Federal Office of Topography swisstopo COSIG Geo.admin.ch: Geoinformation Act 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-to-date, rapid and easy manner, in the required quality and at a reasonable cost.
  7. 7. Federal Office of Topography swisstopo COSIG map.geo.admin.ch Digital data can be viewed, printed out, ordered and supplied by means of the map viewer tool. The required data is available in the form of digital maps and photos, vector data and also as online services. The desired data is available in the form of pixel maps, digital images, vector data etc., at a variety of scales.
