Cadastral survey data – procurement

Cadastral survey data are collected, managed and updated by the cantons. In their entirety, they form a national product.

Product description

Cadastral surveying provides data relating to landownership and is the basis for a broad variety of geographic data and applications in the economy, the administration and private life.

Updating procedure

The fees for the purchase of data are regulated at the cantonal level.

Procuring data for individual cantons

The data for individual cantons can be procured from the respective cantonal surveying supervisory authority.
