Verification of conformity of geoservices to eCH-0056 standards

The «Geoservices application profile» (eCH 0056) provides a guide for the implementation of geoservices in Switzerland and is, due to its reference to Art. 7 Geo-swisstopo, a legally binding standard for basic geoservices developed on the basis of the basic geodata of the federal legislation, or of their competent authorities.

There is no service available for the automatic verification of the conformity of geoservices to the current version of eCH-0056. Therefore, the verification is carried out by means of a self-check or a declaration. Clarifications or questions about individual cases can be requested via the contact form (below).
