The Land Cover Map of Catalonia is a information set of high-resolution thematic cartography on the main types of land cover in the country, such as urban areas, agriculture, forestry or water bodies.
The boreholes database is an inventory of subsurface data in Catalonia through the collection of available geological and geotechnical survey information. The surveys are classified into three groups: surveys, penetrometers and trial pits.
The orthophoto is a cartographic document that consists of a vertical aerial image which has been rectified in such a way that the same scale is kept in the entire surface of the image, being a geometric representation on scale of the terrestrial surface. It is a orthophoto with a resolution of 25 cm generated from images with a pixel resolution variable according to the zones. The color orthophoto (OF-25C) provides information about the visible area of the electromagnetic spectrum. Shows the combination of RGB bands that correspond to the Red, Green and Blue channels, a combination called "natural color".
The municipal database of addresses of Catalonia contains, for each municipality, the set of addresses of places where people can live or activities can be carried out, described by means of a couple of representative coordinates of the site, in two dimensions (2D), and attributes that specify the location and path. This set of data corresponds to the municipality of Quart.
The municipal database of addresses of Catalonia contains, for each municipality, the set of addresses of places where people can live or activities can be carried out, described by means of a couple of representative coordinates of the site, in two dimensions (2D), and attributes that specify the location and path. This set of data corresponds to the municipality of Sant Joan de les Abadesses.
Public forests are forest land belonging to public entities: Government of Catalonia, local, decentralized municipal entities, provincial, state, etc. Public forests are also considered the communal forest land, the use of which corresponds to a population of common neighbors. Also considered private forests managed by the Government through an agreement or consortium.The set contains information for the region of Catalonia, public and private forests managed by the Government, described by coordinates in two dimensions (2D) and attributes that describe the elements necessary for the protection, management and conservation.
Identification of territories characterized by a combination of natural, cultural and symbolic elements, which give them a distinct character from the rest and which are recognized as such by the population. These territories are called landscape units, and they give as much importance to the dynamic, perceptive and experiential elements of the landscape as to the more static and material ones when defining its character.
Location of industrial establishments dedicated to agricultural, food, forestry and fishing activities in Catalonia, with their address, contact details, sector to which they belong and activities they carry out, and RIACC and CCAE codes.
Orthoimage representing the normalized difference vegetation index (NDVI), with a resolution of 1 m. This index makes it possible to estimate the quantity, quality and development of vegetation, based on the normalized difference between the radiation reflected in the infrared band of the electromagnetic spectrum with respect to the red band of the visible spectrum. This set of information is distributed in 2 by-products: Real NDVI orthoimage, where each pixel takes the real value of the index in question (between -1 and 1), in such a way that it facilitates exhaustive studies but requires advanced software; 8-bit NDVI orthoimage, where each pixel takes the value of the index in question but discretized to an integer range between 0 and 200, so that it facilitates an overview.
The Soil Map at a scale of 1:25 000 is a map of edaphological content covering the entire surface of Catalonia, divided into 304 sheets defined according to the official 1:25 000 cut. It is a cartographic document that provides an overview of the edaphic structure of the country and, in summary, provides information on the distribution of soils in the territory, their morphologies, and their physical, chemical and biological characteristics. GT IV is the instrument for the realization of the Soil Map 1:25 000.
