This map has been a long time in development preparation. The data for a sophisticated country like Switzerland needs delicate handling to do justice to this lovely country. We did not want to do ‘just’ another roadmap, similar to those available from a variety of European publishers. Our version shows the physical reality of this mountainous country to good advantage without obscuring the places of interest to visitors.
The road/rail infrastructure within the country is well shown with perhaps more villages being included than would normally be the case. The road network in surrounding countries has been simplified to focus attention on Switzerland itself. Touristic points, such as castles, fortresses, ski areas, and museums have been included, but we removed a lot of data, such as gas stations, schools, post offices, most churches and police stations in an effort to avoiding cluttering the map with an overload of information.
The Geneva side of the map goes from the airport in the north to south of the Old Town and from the Lancy area in the west to the UN complex in the east, showing an improved range of major buildings and businesses as well as hotels, restaurants, pedestrian walkways, churches, tram and train lines and stations, and of course, the famous Jet D’Eaux.
We can laminate this map, which will allow you to draw on it in whiteboard marker or apply map dots to locations of interest without permanently marking the map. The lamination also makes the map very durable and protects against tears and stains.
To laminate this map we have taken the folded map and flattened it out before encapsulating it in high-quality 80-micron laminate, so please be aware that there will still be slight fold lines visible.
