mapplus.ch - new maps, new search engine, stunning graphics

The new MAP+ Search - extremely fast, extremely efficient

The new search function is based on different datasets with a total of 1.8 million objects:

  • Addresses from OSM and from cantons (where freely available, see Open Data)
  • Streets from OSM
  • swissnames
  • A choice of MAP+ Points of Interest

As an example, enter "bern opt 27" or "saoseo" ...

In addition, you can use the Google Search and Google Routing.

OSM++ Map: More, better - and a larger area

We further enhanced the OSM++ map with free data. For example, we added reliefs from high resolution DEMs of the canton of Zurich, of Vorarlberg and Tirol (Austria), and of Southern Tirol and Piemonte (Italy). The GeoTIFF file of the 5m resolution DEM has now a size of 425GB! We extended the coverage, you can navigate from Montpellier to Munich, from Reims to Rimini. In addition, a choice of POIs is now available for the whole area. We currently update the OSM++ map every three months, the latest one is of mid February 2016.

Redesign: New SVG Symbols, Smartphone Version

All symbols of the POIs have been redesigned as vector graphics (SVG). How sparkling these are now can be proofed on high resolution smartphones using the new mobile version. The APPS of the desktop version has as well been redesigned, integrating the dialogs in the panel.

New background map: Aerial Image Canton of Zurich

The canton of Zurich has produced a new high resolution (10cm!) aerial image of the area. And the very good news are: it's free and it is a fast and beautiful WMS - we could not resist - our felicitations to Zurich. @swisstopo: that's the way we like it!
