Model repositories

The concept of the INTERLIS model repository is to make data models available as http-resources. Thus, INTERLIS model files are stored on a web server and can be used e.g. by the FME-Plugin «ili2fme» directly. The advantage for the user lies in the fact that the model file and potentially other imported data model don't need to be stored locally.
The model repository is structured in a hierarchical way. The access point is
The two most important sub-repositories is on the one hand the federal repository, which contains the minimal geodata models for the official geodata sets under federal legislation, on the other hand, the CCGEO (Conference of State Centers for Geoinformation) repository with further sub-repositories for individual cantons.



INTERLIS is a conceptual modeling language designed to ensure long-term compatibility between different systems. INTERLIS is software and system independent.

The most currently used version is INTERLIS 2, version 2.3.
