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 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 GeoBase of soils of Catalonia v1.0 is a database intended to store information on soils caught in the field and that necessary for generate soil maps of the territory of Catalonia at different scales, such as the Soil Map 1: 25,000 of Catalonia (MSC25M), or other maps that have been previously prepared (eg at scales 1: 25,000 and 1: 250,000). Contains information on soil profiles with varying levels of detail captured in the field (observations and pits), the composition on horizons, some of its physical and chemical characteristics as well as different types of soils that appear in an area, its spatial distribution.
The Soil Map of Catalonia 1: 250 000 is the result of the synthesis of the edaphological data available at the time of its preparation, in 2018. This process, carried out by the Cartographic and Geological Institute of Catalonia, has consisted of in the compilation, analysis and correlation of the cartographic information obtained in the different soil mapping works that have been executed in Catalonia since the 70's of the last century.
3D model of geological surfaces that contains the main stratigraphic surfaces and geological structures of Catalonia, the location of the main exploration drillings and the topographic and bathymetric surface of the model area.
Information about snow avalanches of Catalonia. This data set is conforming to the technical specifications of INSPIRE Natural risk zones.
Soil of Catalonia. This data set is conforming to the technical specifications of INSPIRE Soil.
Magnetic anomaly measurements and zoning of the territory according to this at a scale of 1:250,000.
Distribution of soils in the territory according to their morphology and characteristics physical, chemical and biological, and those of the environment where they are found.
Geothermal 3D model of the Fossa de l'Empordà, developed as part of the GeoERA HotLime project (Mapping and Assessment of Geothermal Plays in Deep Carbonate Rocks – Cross-domain Implications and Impacts, 2018-2021). More specifically, this model contains the lithological units, the main geological structures, the geothermal model with the 3D temperature and geothermal potential distribution of the GLF aquifer, the location of the exploration drillings and the topographic surface of the scope of the project.
