Procurement of cadastral survey data

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

Updating cadastral survey data is the responsibility of the cantons.

Costs

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.

Data can be viewed via the corresponding cantonal geoportal (map depiction). The cantons are responsible for the content of their datasets.

Direct access to the cantonal geoportals.

Procuring data for several cantons (as a rule, 10 or more)

The Federal Office of Topography (swisstopo) is responsible for the operation of the cadastral survey geodata portal (cadastral survey geoportal).

Taking account of the federal organisational structure of the cadastral survey (with the cantons as decentralised data owners), an Internet platform was created via which the cadastral survey data can be obtained.

This national portal, which was initially set up to meet the needs of the federal administration, was opened up for clients that are active at the national level and have demonstrated a need for cadastral survey data. These clients are:

  • Authorities and companies mandated by them
  • Companies
  • Research and educational institutions
