Development Atlas
Development sites in Switzerland with a minimum area of 10,000 m².

The Development Atlas is a nationwide database of Swiss sites that are at least 10,000 m² and currently undergoing a transformation or have the potential for transformation. It contains the most important sites, i.e. those relevant to the development of the respective municipalities and regions, and thus serves as a leading indicator for future construction work and spatial development.

It is constantly being expanded and updated by means of a notification system and automated spatial monitoring.

Development Atlas

In combination with our additional location and market data, the Development Atlas provides an interesting basis for systematic analyses – e.g. potential analyses of municipalities and regions for the public sector and promotion of business locations. Possible analyses and concepts include:

  • Development potential analyses of municipalities and regions for the public sector and companies.
  • Market analyses and location-finding for service providers, industrial companies as well as real estate investors.
  • Competition analyses and forecasts.
  • Monitoring of individual sites.
  • Utilisation conception and consulting on site development.

The following details are documented for every site:

  • Original and current designation
  • Address and coordinates
  • Site perimeter (geo-coded polygons)
  • Site area and potential gross floor area
  • Site type and status
  • Present and planned construction zone (according to the harmonized construction zone types of the Federal Office for Spatial Development)
  • Source and Internet link

Where available, the following additional information is also provided:

  • Plot numbers and landowner
  • Other parties involved: planners, designers, developers
  • Pictures and visualizations
  • Documents (planning reports, documentation, press reports)
  • Site sections (e.g. construction areas with varying developments)
  • Usage mix, number of residential units and total investment
  • Customer-specific information and locational attributes
  • Special topics (e.g. land contamination, demolition volumes)
