Which historic industrial sites best exemplify the evolution of Switzerland's distinct industrial heritage? We carefully defined a set of historic, economic, and architectural criteria as well as a screening process to select such sites. We also designed and implemented an interactive web site to display information about the sites to foster appreciation and preservation by the Swiss people. The sites displayed at http://www.industrial-heritage.ch were selected by applying this process to an exhaustive database of Swiss industrial sites.
