Gallery of Swiss open data map projects


For a presentation at a UNIGIS event (also see Mapping workshop) I’ve collected a small selection of projects which effectively use open data with open maps, most of which were created during hackathons. Please let me know if you have any questions about how these were developed.

In alphabetic order.

Cumulizer: heatmap of spending at groceries

Denkmalführer: tour of historical objects in and around Zürich


NapMap/Sieste: find a perfect place to take a nap

SwissMap: comparison of (at first glance) unrelated datasets
