“Atlas of Switzerland – online” 2019 version
A new terrain model engine (REX) gives the 3D topography an even smoother look and adapts the level of detail flexibly on zooming.
The atlas now contains 180 thematic maps, many of which are new. They include maps for the geology of wine, the Hochwachten towers, the Helvetic Revolution, religious maps, spatial typologies, toboggan runs and flight hazards.
As an additional innovation, 3D arrows can now be added to the maps. You will find an example of this in the “Helvetic Revolution/French Invasion of 1798” map.
Behind the scenes, a lot has been invested in updating the user interface (GUI) and the cloud server network at ETH Zurich has been improved.
With the HiDPI resolution (retina display), now supported by Mac OSX and Windows, you can also enjoy a piercingly clear map image.
