The Swiss Fall Foliage Map

Every year the Smoky Mountain website releases a Fall Foliage interactive map which shows when and where leaves change their colors across the United States during autumn. The map is so popular that I've always wondered why no-one has thought to create similar maps for other countries. Well - now they have.

The Swiss Tourism website has released a new Foliage Map, which shows where and when Swiss trees will be at their most colorful. This interactive map includes a slide control which allows you to adjust the date. When you change the date the map automatically updates to show the predicted foliage colors across the country for the chosen date.

The Fall colors displayed on the map are based on current climate data for drought, heat and precipitation conditions. The map also takes into account data on last year's fall foliage colors.
