Generalised background map for the representation of hydrological data

In addition to the outline of Switzerland, the generalised background map displays a simplified, reduced watercourse network and some selected cities for improved orientation at higher zoom levels. The map is used on the FOEN’s hydrological data website (www.hydrodaten.admin.ch) to display a range of hydrological information (e.g. warning levels reached, water temperature, etc.). A generalised map is required in order to prevent masking of the hydrological point information (coloured points).
