In order to reach this goal, it is essential to include all parties involved in geo-information. Sponsors of e-geo.ch are: the federal government (its coordinating organ GCS-COSIG), the cantons (represented by "IKGEO", the coordinating organ for Geoinformation of the cantons), the municipalities and cities (represented by local authorities) as well as the collective representatives of SOGI (Swiss Organisation for Geographic Information), i.e., private industry, educational institutions and non-governmental associations.
