Superficial deposits

Dataset

Sediment data show mainly the prevalence of soil types covering the bedrock surface. Most of the soils were formed during and after the last ice age. The data shows only the soil that dominates in the upper meters of the terrain surface. Thick and thin layers by other soils may occur further down in the soil profile.

Usage

The dataset can be used as basis for decision making in the overall land-use and environmental planning, vulnerability analysis, assessment of ground conditions, and groundwater and infiltration potential. Sediment data in scale range of 1: 250,000 is intended to provide a regional overview. In municipal planning for example, there is a need for more detailed soil data and data mapped in scale 1: 50,000 or better may be used.
