Using the UML/INTERLIS Editor, data models can be described ("drawn") in UML and then exported as INTERLIS 2 models. Since the UML/INTERLIS Editor comprises the INTERLIS Compiler as well, models are automatically checked before they are exported.

Software errors of the UML/INTERLIS Editor or new tool requirements can be registered directly on the developer platform GitHub.

INTERLIS is a conceptual modeling language designed to ensure long-term compatibility between different systems. INTERLIS is software and system independent.

INTERLIS - who is behind it?

COGIS (Coordination, Geo-Information and Services) is the guardian of the formal language INTERLIS and provides the necessary information and documents. The activities of the Federal Administration in the field of geoinformation (GI) and geoinformation systems (GIS) are also coordinated by COGIS. See swisstopo (COGIS)
