Celebrate 175 years of Swisstopo maps with ViewRanger

Posted on 11/10/2013

Switzerland is the perfect winter getaway, whether it is for walking, skiing or snowboarding or other winter sports. This year Swisstopo, the Swiss Federal Office of Topography, marks its 175th Anniversary, and to celebrate we are giving 20% off whole country mapping when bought in the ViewRanger app.  


Swisstopo offer.jpgFor years the work of Swisstopo, Switzerland’s national mapping agency, was secret as it was a military division, but now detailed mapping of areas popular with winter visitors such as St Moritz, Zermatt and Interlaken can be download to your smartphone via ViewRanger.


Swisstopo has been praised for the accuracy and quality of its mapping. Once downloaded the maps can viewed without the need for a mobile signal. Premium maps are also available for other popular winter holiday locations such as USA, Canada and most of Europe.


As well as mapping ViewRanger also hosts thousands of trail guides that can be downloaded for walking, cycling, skiing, snowboarding etc. from more than 400 brands, including many across the Alps such as Switzerland Tourism.


This weekend* we are offering 20% off Swisstopo’s maps for Switzerland North (1:50,000), Switzerland South (1:50,000) and the whole of Switzerland** (1:25,000) when you purchase the mapping from within the ViewRanger app.


While you are enjoying your Winter Sports holiday with ViewRanger you can also track your route down the mountain. Tag tweets and pictures to the track to create a TripStory that can be shared with your friends back home. TripStories also show statistics of your route such as your altitude loss, maximum altitude, distance covered etc.


ViewRanger is the perfect partner to any winter holiday, so why not celebrate Swisstopo’s 175th Anniversary, by purchasing some mapping in-app, and utilising the app on your next winter adventure.


*offer ends 13th October 2013.

** The whole of Switzerland is only available to purchase on Apple app store.
