GIS blogs from the cartography country

At Ernst Basler + Partner (EPB, my employer) Stephan Heuel and I have done some community-building in the Swiss geoindustry, starting with a Twitter analysis followed by five instalments of the GeoBeer event series. Further, Stephan and I both blog privately (see Stephan’s blog here) and within the EBP geoinformatics blog.


These activities led me to re-assess the state of Swiss GIS blogging (once again). Here is what I found after my call for contributions by fellow GIS enthusiasts. All these blogs relate to geoinformation and GIS and are written in Switzerland (in English or in German), consider subscribing in order to stay abreast of the latest GIS developments in Switzerland:

  • not exactly about GIS but a blog of geography riddles about Switzerland: (thanks for this one, Vasile!)

For now I have included blog-related formats that don’t allow comments, although using a stricter definition I think they shouldn’t be lumped together with actual blogs that encourage interaction.

Have I missed anything? Most certainly, for example the list contains no blogs in French or Italian. Please shoot me an e-mail if you know more or list any additional Swiss GIS blogs in the comments!

Ralph is a world-citizen, a geoinformation specialist by profession, and interested in many topics. Here, he'll confine himself mostly to things geo-visual.
