Envirocat: a Swiss Catalogue for Sharing Environmental Information


Duration: October 2004 - on-going

This paper presents the envirocat project, the Swiss Catalogue of Environmental Data. Envirocat deals with different aspects of sharing: federal and cantonal institutions share information about environmental data with other institutions and the public in a system accessible to all. Sharing is also significant when it comes to providing the contents of the catalogue: many different partners share the workload of updating.
