Metadata

Additional information

The map of natural soil susceptibility to compaction was created from the evaluation of selected parameters from the ESDB. The soil susceptibility to compaction was divided into 4 categories. Two additional categories represent the data concerning places where this evaluation was either not relevant or could not been provided because of lack of information. In total there are 6 categories:

0 - no soil. This represents water bodies, glaciers and rock outcrops

1 - low susceptibility to compaction

2. - medium susceptibility to compaction

3. - high susceptibility to compaction

4. - very high susceptibility to compaction

9. - no evaluation possible. This was the case of towns including also soils, soils disturbed by man and marsh.
