Geographical Information Systems

The analysis and integration of geospatial information play an important role in a variety of subject areas of geography. Geographic Information Systems (GIS) can be used at the GIUB to determine issues and processes, visualize and generate new information and knowledge through the analytical link to model spatial processes. At the GIUB GIS is used in research and teaching (geoprocessing I - III), and as well in practical applications.

Please send your requests for geodata of Switzerland and if available data sourced from other areas of the world to the contact address. We advise and support scientists and students of GIUB on the use of GIS within their research fields.
