Who is using geocat.ch?

Geocat.ch is the name for the metadata catalogue for swiss geodata and helps users with different needs and requestst to localise geodata. 

Federal offices, cantons, communes and private entreprises record the metadata for their geodata in geocat.ch. geocat.ch represents therefore an ideal starting point for your search for geodata like aerial photographs, protected sites, natural dangers, earthquakes etc. It's composed of a search and editing application as well as a catalogue web service.

Metadata are an essential component for the setting an operation of a spatial data infrastruture. That is why within the programm of e-geo.ch an application for research and recording of metadata has been established. The application is based on the open source softaware GeoNetwork and is online in version 3.4 since 2018. The first version has gone online in 2004.
