The New Swiss National Map Series
The Swiss National Mapping Agency (swisstopo) started production of the new 1:25’000 national map series with ArcGIS on the 1st of March this year. A short presentation will describe the history of this project and of its connection with the Topographic Landscape Model. The presentation will go on to show some of the tools developed for this project as well as the new technology being used to produce print ready PDF files. Finally a live demonstration with OSM data will show some of the tools and processes in action.
