Swiss authorities are making their freely available data accessible centrally on the open government data (OGD) portal opendata.swiss. The data offering is being continually expanded. The portal is operated by the Federal Archives, which developed it as part of the OGD Switzerland project.
Administrations gather and collate data of all kinds, including statistical, geographic, environmental and weather data. These can be processed and recombined by third parties. Switzerland’s public authorities are therefore making data available centrally via opendata.swiss that can be reused without restriction. The data offering is being continually expanded.
opendata.swiss is operated by the Federal Archives. It was developed as part of the OGD Switzerland project, in which numerous other authorities from the Confederation, the cantons and communes are involved. The project is being implemented as part of E-Government Switzerland. Basic information on the project can therefore be found on this page, along with key documents on the project. New developments related to opendata.swiss are announced on the Federal Archives homepage or on Twitter.
