Geographical Names Switzerland - INSPIRE

Geographical Names is based on the data set swissNAMES3D by swisstopo. It is the most comprehensive collection of geographical names for Switzerland and Liechtenstein. swissNAMES3D contains over 300'000 georeferenced entries divided in different categories. The dataset replaces since 2015 the old product swissNAMES updated until 2008. In the federal geoportal the layer "geographical names" corresponds to a selection of swissNAMES3D for the different zoomlevels.
