Geodata supply for academic use

► Geodata for Switzerland can be accessed here:
► Please contact [email protected] to obtain information related to the diffusion of geographic data.
► 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 ordered 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.



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