First GovTech hackathon for the digital transformation of Switzerland.
The geo.admin.ch API/Geoportal is part of the most successful solution.
On 23 and 24 March 2023, the Federal Chancellery organised its first public hackathon to strengthen the digital transformation. Specifically, 130 participants were invited to develop solutions to improve the interfaces of the authorities' digital services. The results are publicly available.
The most successful solution: « Intervention planning for the search for missing persons », which is based on official maps. The solution allows the intervention leaders to indicate which rescuer should go to which area. The information reaches the rescue workers via an application.
