Why is the portal important? What are its aims? Who is behind it? What is next? Here you will find all the information about the Geology Portal.

Hit the bull's-eye


The Swiss geology scene is federally organized; its activities are not coordinated. As a result, geologically relevant data, information and services are often accessible with difficulty or restrictions. The producers and providers of data use separate sales channels. The search for data thus sometimes becomes a challenging, time-consuming and costly undertaking.


The Geology Portal provides a solution here. As a central platform for the Swiss geology scene it has the following aims:

  • Easier access to geologically relevant data and information
  • Central provision of contact information for members of the Swiss geology scene and expertise in the field of geology
  • Improvement of the Swiss geology scene’s internal and external communication
  • Strengthen the public perception of the field of geology
