The minimal geodata model specifies the structure of the official geodata for conservation areas in accordance with the Federal Ordinance on the Compensation of Losses in Hydropower Use. This Ordinance contains precise regulations regarding the applicable prerequisites for entitlement to compensation of losses resulting from the waiver of hydropower use in order to protect landscapes of national importance. The amounts concerned are tied to contractually agreed conservation targets, and are paid annually. In order to monitor the various contractual relationships, the Swiss Federal Office of Energy (SFOE) carries out periodical success controls.
The minimal geodata model is explained in detail in the documentation. The INTERLIS 2.3 data model and geodata are available for downloading.
