Derivative and complementary data

The derived data and other data page provides geodata on:

The Land Use Statistics 1972

Land Use Statistics 1972 is provided on a separate page from the other surveys because the media and methodology used to generate the data are very different.

Forest composition in Switzerland

The geodata on the Forest composition in Switzerland classifies the hectares into different categories of deciduous, mixed and coniferous forest based on satellite data for the whole of Switzerland.

Swiss Soil Suitability Map

The Swiss Soil Suitability geodata provided by GEOSTAT are derived from the digitalization and consolidation of the soil capability map of Switzerland at a scale of 1:200,000 published in 1980 by the Swiss Federal Offices for Spatial Planning, Agriculture and Forestry.
