;Sonney, Romain ;Cattin, Stéphane
The database BDFGeotherm, containing physical, chemical and hydrogeological information on more than 200 deep fluids from 84 sites in Switzerland and some neighbouring regions, was first compiled on ACCESS code and was later modified to improve its availability and attractiveness by using Google Earth free software and the CREGE website (www.crege.ch/BDFGeotherm/). BDFGeotherm is a functional tool for various phases of a geothermal project such as exploration, production or fluid re-injection. This database allows gathering existing geothermal data, generally widely dispersed and often difficult to reach, towards a user’s friendly tool. Downloading the file “BDFGeotherm.kmz” from the CREGE website makes possible to visualize the 84 geothermal sites from Switzerland and neighbouring areas. Each one is represented with a pinpoint of different colour, for diverse temperature ranges.
A large majority of sites is located in the northern part of the Jura Mountain and in the upper Rhone Valley. General information about water use, geology, flow rate, temperature and mineralization are given in a small window by clicking on the desired pinpoint. Moreover, two links to Internet addresses are available for each site in each window, allowing returning to the CREGE website or providing more details on each sampling point such as: geographical description, reservoir geology, hydraulics, hydrochemistry, isotopes and geothermal parameters. For a limited number of sites, photos and a geological log can be viewed and exported (Sonney et al., 2009).

;Sonney, RomainA database on geothermal fluids in Switzerland, called BDFGeotherm, has been compiled. It consists of nine related tables with fields describing the geographical, geological, hydrogeological and geothermal conditions of each sampling location. In all, 203 springs and boreholes from 82 geothermal sites in Switzerland and neighboring regions are listed in this new interactive Microsoft Access database. BDFGeotherm is a functional tool for various phases of a geothermal project such as exploration, production or fluid re-injection. Many types of queries can be run, using any fields from the database, and the results can be put into tables and printed or exported and saved in other files. In addition to describing the database structure, this paper also gives a summary of the reservoir formations, the geographical distribution of hydraulic parameters, the geochemical types of thermal waters and the potential geothermal resources associated with the sites.
