Detailed Information:
The main purpose of the envirocat catalogue is to encourage the use of available environmental data by making it easier for the public to access these data. The description of data in a catalogue is essential for quick retrieval and for correct interpretation of the data by users. envirocat aims to answer the following questions:
- what environmental data is collected in Switzerland?
- On what legal basis are the data collected?
- Where, when and by whom are the data collected?
- who distributes the data and how are the data accessible?
- What products derive from these data?
envirocat also contributes to the implementation of the Aarhus Convention (1998) which aims among other to promote public access to environmental information.
