Geodata supply for academic use

► Geodata policy supply at EPFL, and at ENAC in particular, is under negociation. The geodata supply process is suspended while no final decision is taken. Information will be displayed on this page as soon as the new procedure will be established.
► Please contact [email protected] to obtain information related to the diffusion of geographic data.
► A static catalog of available geodata can be consulted.
► We have contacts with Federal Offices, in particular S+T (swisstopo) and OFS (Swiss Federal Office for Statistics). In case data have to be used in the context of external mandates, they have to be ordred directly with the Federal Offices mentioned here above.
ASIT VD is the “Association pour le système d’information du territoire vaudois” (Canton of Vaud GIS association). It conceived a dedicated Internet platform to facilitate geodata supply. A geodata catalog (Geocatalogue) is available to look for specific geodata according to several criteria (place, data format, manager, etc. ). Moreover, an online application (Geocommande) permits to order geodata and to download them.



The GIS lab distributes some software to the members of EPFL and the ENAC faculty through ENACSOFT. All software is only for academic research and not for commercial use. Information here.
