GIN - The Common Information Platform for Natural Hazards

As specialist federal agencies, the Federal Office of Meteorology and Climatology MeteoSwiss, the Federal Office for the Environment FOEN, the WSL Institute for Snow and Avalanche Research SLF and the Swiss Seismological Service SED at the ETH-Zurich are responsible for alerting the population and authorities in the event of storms, floods avalanches and earthquakes. With GIN, the Joint Information Platform for Natural Hazards, they provide timely and relevant specialised information in a combined and practical form to the federal, cantonal and communal task forces to facilitate their response to natural events. The information platform assists its users by providing the very latest data, models and bulletins issued by the participating institutions.
