Geology scene

The geology scene works on geology-related tasks. The Geology Portal is an important step in strengthening the Swiss geology scene, for a more efficient collaboration and an improved awareness of geology amongst the general public.

Network

 

A large number of independent organizations collect, compile and distribute geologically relevant data and information. The organizations in the field of geology and in the related disciplines (geotechnics, geophysics, etc.) are a community referred to as the ‘Swiss geology scene’. This scene is heterogeneously organized. Each organization pursues its own goals according to independent strategies. As a result, geologically relevant data, information and services are often accessible with difficulty or restrictions. In order to take into account as broadly as possible the requirements of the whole geology scene, the Geology Portal is being expanded and operated by representatives of the largest stakeholders under the leadership of swisstopo / Swiss Geological Survey. It is the portal of the entire Swiss geology scene.


Find here the overview of the Swiss geology scene and expand your own network.
