Soil and water related maps

 

Danish digital surface geological maps

Danmarks digitale jordartskort

Since 1988, GEUS has mapped the Danish surface Geology. Many of these data are collected in surface geological maps, which are maintained in scale 1:200.000 (nation-wide) and in scale 1:25.000. These maps are not yet finished, but cover 84% of Denmark. At the moment only metadata and descriptions exist on the internet.

Danish soil profiles

Danske Jordbundsprofiler

Danish soil profiles retain 68 well-described type profiles with both profile- and landscape pictures. For each soil profile, there is a profile description, horizon description analytical data and option of tree species. As the first substantial work, which describes Danish soil profiles, the collection will be suitable for teaching. The intention of "Danske jordbundsprofiler" has also been to create a solid basis for the Danish forest site classification system. To make it easier to use the collection, the soil profiles are ordered after types of landscape.

JUPITER

Jupiter is a nation-wide database designed for data relating to shallow boreholes, groundwater chemistry, waterlevels, water resources, etc. This database contains data for more than 230.000 Danish boreholes and more than 5.7 million chemical analyses of groundwater and drinking water.

The Areal Information System (AIS)

Areal Informations Systemet (AIS)

The Areal Information System (AIS) is a database system providing access to geographically localized natural and environmental data. The purpose of the project was to compile data to be incorporated into a geographical information system (GIS), displaying national areal mapping as seen from a natural and environmental point of view.
