From today, Terravis will provide authorized users with data from the land register and cadastral surveying of Canton Berne and enable electronic business processing with the land registers. The activation is part of Switzerland’s eGRIS e-government project (electronic real estate information).
Canton Berne began the digitalization of its land register data more than 20 years ago. The activation of Switzerland's second largest canton in Terravis represents an important step towards the implementation of a national information portal with electronic business processing between the economy and the authorities.
The aim of the eGRIS e-government project, which forms the basis for Terravis, is to implement a Switzerland-wide information system for land register data as well as electronic business processing with the land registers via a single interface. The land registers, credit institutions and notaries from the cantons of Uri, Glarus, Thurgau, Ticino, Basel-Land and some of Graubünden already use the platform. Following the activation of Canton Berne, it is now possible to query over 1.7 million plots.
SIX Group is implementing the Switzerland-wide eGRIS project in close cooperation with the cantons on behalf of the Swiss Federal Department of Justice. Data protection is given the highest priority at all times. It is only possible for someone to access Terravis if they have the required authorization in accordance with the legal provisions and requirements of the relevant canton.
