Welcome to GeoAdmin API’s documentation!

The GeoAdmin API allows the integration in web pages of geospatial information provided by the Swiss Confederation.

These pages are dedicated to developer interested in using the API.

Use the GeoAdmin API Forum to ask questions: http://groups.google.com/group/geoadmin-api

Do you want to see some more examples?


The GeoAdmin API and all GeoAdmin services can only be used in HTTPS context (HTTP will be automatically redirected to HTTPS). The access and use of the data or the services is free of charge, subject to the provisions on fair use, see www.geo.admin.ch/terms-of-use. For a list of all available layers and their accessibility please refer to the FAQ.

To receive technical updates, we recommend to actively use the forum or mailing list at http://groups.google.com/group/geoadmin-api and RSS Feed https://groups.google.com/group/geoadmin-api/feed/rss_v2_0_msgs.xml.

Note on web scraping: Automatic parsing of the geoservices via bots with high query intensities is to be refrained from. For obtaining the datasets outside the context of the web services (use in offline systems, databases, etc.), the download service or file based download has to be used.
