  2. 2. Federal Office of Topography swisstopo COSIG Federal Office of Topography swisstopo • Federal Geo-Information center • 346 employees • Producer of the swiss national maps • Provider of about 80 geoservices and web mapping applications federated under «geo.admin.ch: the geoportal of the Swiss Confederation» • swisstopo operates geo.admin.ch on behalf of the coordinating agency for Federal geographical information, GCG www.swisstopo.admin.ch – www.geo.admin.ch
  3. 3. Federal Office of Topography swisstopo COSIG Agenda • Geo.admin.ch • Situation 1.1.2013 • Redesign • Situation 1.5.2014
  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.

  11. 11. Federal Office of Topography swisstopo COSIG 1.1.2013: Issues • Double code base • Double release cycle • iOS & Android support only • ExtJS & OpenLayers 2 end of life • ExtJS & Sencha frequent release cycles & incompatibilities • No HTML5, no CSS3, no 3D • Always more screen sizes (smartphone, tablet, phablets, smarttvs, 4K etc…)
  12. 12. Federal Office of Topography swisstopo COSIG 1.1.2013: Other issues • User survey feedback: functions are not understood and/or not discovered
  13. 13. Federal Office of Topography swisstopo COSIG MANDATORY REDESIGN & REDEVELOPMENT !!!
  14. 14. Federal Office of Topography swisstopo COSIG Don’t make me think !!! … still 10’000 users per day ;-)
  15. 15. Federal Office of Topography swisstopo COSIG Our main issue ? We are GIS specialists…
  16. 16. Federal Office of Topography swisstopo COSIG Who are the users ? Authorities of the Confederation, the cantons and communes, the private sector, the public and the academic and scientific institutions -> Oups, in other words, everyone
  17. 17. Federal Office of Topography swisstopo COSIG What want the users? Fast access to information -> Paradigm change from « Access to data » to « Access to information » Federal office -> « We need to publish geodata » Internet -> « Geodata are maps » Citizen -> « I need an information »
  18. 18. Federal Office of Topography swisstopo COSIG What know the users? Google & Google maps
  19. 19. Federal Office of Topography swisstopo COSIG What are our constraints and restrictions ? Law Corporate Design Bund
  20. 20. Federal Office of Topography swisstopo COSIG 20 New design proposal
  21. 21. Federal Office of Topography swisstopo COSIG 21 Less parts 4 parts (previously 7)
  22. 22. Federal Office of Topography swisstopo COSIG More map More map
  23. 23. Federal Office of Topography swisstopo COSIG 23 Functions Functions in one place

  25. 25. Federal Office of Topography swisstopo COSIG Search Only one central search
  26. 26. Federal Office of Topography swisstopo COSIG Topics Topics for fast access to layers
  27. 27. Federal Office of Topography swisstopo COSIG …. and responsive !!!
  28. 28. Federal Office of Topography swisstopo COSIG How to create that ? Base library… OpenLayers 3 (crowdfunding initiated by swisstopo) -> 3D ready, Google Closure, HTML5 Bootstrap for responsiveness / CSS3 AngularJS for JS architecture https://github.com/geoadmin/mf-geoadmin3
  29. 29. Federal Office of Topography swisstopo COSIG How to create that ? … and work
  30. 30. Federal Office of Topography swisstopo COSIG Challenges Mobile & desktop interactions are not the same (finger vs mouse, for example) Devices heterogeneity -> testing challenge Limited financial ressources Avoid « Geoportal don’t work » syndrom -> focus on the essential (80/20)
  31. 31. Federal Office of Topography swisstopo COSIG Opportunities Mobile first strategy Wide plattform support (web app > app) Huge performance improvement Time support (historical maps and aerial images) Fully Open Source Bootstrap and AngularJS are used by big players - perenity
  32. 32. Federal Office of Topography swisstopo COSIG Next steps 3D viewer Offline Export KML More data
  33. 33. Federal Office of Topography swisstopo COSIG Help yourself http://map.geo.admin.ch 300 geodata layers freely accessible
  34. 34. Federal Office of Topography swisstopo COSIG Widely recognized
