Swisstopo now make various layers available

Post by jloe » Wed Feb 10, 2016 9:46 am

Have a look at http://www.bonasavoir.ch/actu_online.php?id=923045 for new possibilities.

map.geo.admin.ch now make layers available for snowshoe tracks, hiking, avalanche zones, etc.
It would be nice to have these layers available in Alpinequest.
Many thanks.

Hi and thanks for your suggestion.
I'll have a look at those layers and see if they can be added in the app. I'm very busy with the new version now, maybe I'll only be able to add them after its release.
Best regards

These would be amazing layers to add to the app.
Here is an example of the 30% slopes and ski tour route layers:

I would love to see these added to the Swiss topo maps.
Would this require an app update or just refresh the community map/layers list?

I just had a look at it and unfortunately this map server doesn't use common protocols, so I'll need more time to investigate and I won't be able to to this before the next version release.
Note that you can get 30° slopes in the app as explained here.

Thanks for the info, however the 30 degree slope map you link to only works in France, not Switzerland.
Hopefully you can get the Swiss topo layers working after your next release.
Thanks again.

No sorry I haven't found any time to work on that yet.
If you have any information on how this map works it would help (projections, origins, scales, etc).
Best regards
