Welcome to NPOC
NPOC (National Point of Contact) for Satellite Images is a public service, initiated by the Swiss State Secretariat for Education and Research. We foster the use of earth observation by sharing our knowledge of technology and methods with potential users. NPOC is a joint venture shared by the Remote Sensing Laboratories (RSL) at the Univ. of Zurich and the Federal Office of Topography (swisstopo), and acts as a contact point for Swiss authorities, research agencies, commercial providers and end-users.
