Geoportail features

Géoportail is the internal geolocation tool at EPFL.
Main features:

  • display ‘business layers’, i.e. information reserved for technical uses or security.
  • make drawings and  measurements.

Certain specific information, which does not concern the general public, is displayed in the “geoportal” tool, without connection.

To access it, please click on the link in red ‘Geoportal’ via the right button : Options plan .

These are :

  • public ‘business’ layers (network connections, mobility, infrastructure)
  • the measuring instrument (surface and area)
  • the drawing instrument

It is necessary to have a special right to access more sensitive information, such as :

  • security related information
  • information related to Camipro terminals (select the “Geoportail_Camipro_User” group)
  • the list of doors protected by a CAMIPRO card reader

Please contact support [email protected] if you wish to obtain such access.

Beneficiaries have access to these layers via the Login button Login sur géoportail , located in the tools to the right of the Geoportal application.
