By joining geodata4edu.ch, all members of the participating institution gain access to a comprehensive range of geodata. geodata4edu.ch therefore not only offers access to geodata for users from classic application areas (such as cartography, architecture or spatial planning), but also students and researchers from other disciplines.
Added value for participating institutions
The institution benefits from the fact that it does not have to run its own geodata infrastructure. The geodata is prepared and provided by geodata4edu.ch’s cooperative partners. Moreover, the participating institution does not have to conduct its own negotiations with the owners of the data (federal offices, cantons).
Added value for students, tutors and researchers
geodata4edu.ch offers a central search entry point for a comprehensive range of geodata via the metadata catalogue. The data can either be considered directly on the web browser or processed in a GIS programme.
