Hydrological Atlas of Switzerland HADES

The Hydrological Atlas of Switzerland HADES is a collaborative work by Swiss hydrological agencies (federal offices, cantons, research institutions and private specialist offices in the water sector). For more than 30 years, it has made basic hydrological information, specialised knowledge and didactic media available to a wide range of users. The Atlas comprises the original map series of 63 printed plates, and a wide range of more recent products. These are accessible via hydrologischeratlas.ch.
