What is MapAnt Switzerland

MapAnt Switzerland is an automatically generated orienteering map, which covers the whole of Switzerland.

How was MapAnt created?

The map itself for MapAnt Switzerland was created with OCAD.

Large amounts of elevation data were imported via XML script LiDAR and DTM Import to derive contour lines and a vegetation map.

Also, data from the large-scale topographic landscape model of Switzerland were imported and converted into OCAD symbols.

Afterwards, WMTS tiles were exported in OCAD using XML Script WMTS Export and made available on the web with leaflet.

Data source

Most of the data was obtained from swisstopo.

Contour lines: swissALTI3D
Vegetation map: swissSURFACE3D
Topographic landscape model: swissTLM3D

However, for some cantons swisstopo does not yet provide swissSURFACE3D data to calculate a vegetation map.
For cantons Bern, Basel, Baselland and Solothurn, these data could be obtained from the cantonal authorities.
For cantons Graubünden (Grisons), Wallis (Valais) and Jura, no data could be obtained and therefore the vegetation map is missing in these cantons.

How to use MapAnt?

MapAnt can animate to discover new areas, you can load it as a background map for mapping or print parts of it for training.
Achtung.PNGPlease note, that the possession of this map does not entitle to any orienteering activities in the terrain. Before using this map in the terrain, it is mandatory to contact the local orienteering club or the regional orienteering association to clarify forest use, private property, nature reserves, wildlife reserves, protected areas and other restrictions.

MapAnt kann zum entdecken neuer Gebiete animieren, man kann es als Hintergrundkarte zum kartieren laden oder Teile davon für Trainings ausdrucken.
Achtung.PNGBitte beachtet aber, dass der Besitz dieser Karte nicht automatisch zu irgendwelchen OL-Aktivitäten im Gelände berechtigt. Vor einer Benützung dieser Karte im Gelände ist zwingend der lokale OL-Verein oder der regionale OL-Verband zu kontaktieren, um Waldnutzung, Privatbesitz, Naturschutzgebiete, Wildruhezonen, Schutzgebiete und weitere Einschränkungen abzuklären.

MapAnt Switzerland and its pilot project MapAnt NWS was supported by OL Gönnerclub and ROLV NWS.
Also, MapAnt Switzerland was inspired by various similar projects worldwide, most notably MapAnt Finland and MapAnt Norway.
Thanks for the idea and willingness to share knowledge.
