«Atlas of Switzerland – online» Release 2020

We are pleased to offer you a new release that includes a user interface refresh, an update of the Atlas software components, and a variety of updated and new maps.

As an often requested and helpful innovation, a map index and a timeline are now offered on the atlas start page.
In the index all maps can be displayed and directly selected. They can be filtered by category and sorted by map title, number of hits or date.
In the timeline all maps are displayed on a time axis and can be selected directly with a time period. In addition, the time period displayed can be adjusted in the timeline or by zooming in. You can also filter the maps by category and sort them by map title or period.

On the technical side, an update of the atlas software components and the cloud server environment was carried out: The operation of the application, as well as the construction of the 3D maps will now be faster.

Investments were also made in terms of content: Explore now more than 300 thematic maps, of which more than 50 maps were newly created in 2020. You will find interesting maps on dog breeds, camping, observation towers, but also on economic sectors, voting and national elections.

Have a look! Download the new Atlas desktop app for Windows 8, 10 or Mac OSX (Catalina 10.15 or higher) under “Download“.
