Geodata Spatial- and location-based data allow for pin-point analyses.
Due to our diverse data universe on the micro and macro levels, we can examine sites for their attractiveness and observe the relevant spatial developments. Learn more about our GIS-based analyses and consulting services.
Our GIS analyses draw upon on a variety of geodata. In recent years, these spatial data have not only become more and more precise, but also have become more and more comprehensive. Likewise, the instruments and possibilities for processing them have multiplied. Particularly in commercial areas with a strong spatial reference, focus shifts to the pin-point analysis of spatial conditions and developments. The interdisciplinary collaboration of our spatial specialists with software engineers and data analysts creates customer-oriented and user-friendly products.

Points of interest
Regional infrastructure is an important factor for the quality of a location. Points of interest do not only cover retailers, gastronomic offer and educational or cultural institutions, but also bus, train and tram stopping points and how often they are frequented. Even emission sources (mobile radio antennas, high-voltage cables, etc.) are included in a point-by-point manner. In addition to the visual representation on a map or in a GIS tool (GeoInfo), spatial calculations and analyses are also possible due to the data.
Planned transportation projects
Wüest Partner has created a Switzerland-wide, geo-based database for transportation infrastructure projects at local, regional and national levels for the first time. This lays the foundation for determining current and future development quality as well as forecasts for regional developments. We do not only track lane expansions or rail extensions, but also timetable changes and network additions. We take into account all transportation means throughout Switzerland, stops and how often they are frequented.
Due to an agent-based model, pedestrian flows are modelled for all streets and walkways throughout Switzerland. The frequencies can be distinguished and analysed by time of day, age group and reason for movement (shopping, education, work, etc.). These pedestrian frequencies are used as the basis for further studies, which identify and demonstrate usage- and provider-specific customer potentials.
Spatial data of the cantons and municipalities
Spatial data of the municipalities and cantons, such as the data from official surveying or the hazard map for populated areas, are the foundation for various analyses in the area of location/site searches.
Topography and residential area
From the digital-terrain model, important location information is determined, such as the gradient, exposure, sunlight and view. We also use the data of ground cover as well as structural zoning.
Data on population distribution, differences according to age group, enable small-scale density and development analyses. Economic aspects can be covered by employment data for every hectare of land. This provides spatial data on the socio-economic environment at the micro-locational level.
