  • The International Geological Map of Europe and the Mediteranean Regions 1 : 1 500 000 ("Carte Géologique Internationale de l'Europe et des Régions Méditerranéennes 1 : 1 500 000") shows the geology of the European continent from the Ural mountains in the east up to Island in the west and the whole mediteranean region in the south. The geology is differenciated in stratigraphy, igneous and metamorphic rocks. In addition there are two legend sheets and a title sheet. The language of the series is French.

  • The International Map of the Iron Ore Deposits of Europe 1 : 2.500.000 completed in 1977 is published by the Federal Institute for Geosciences and Natural Resources (BGR) About 70 geoscientists from Europe, North Africa, Eastern Europe and Middle East collaborated with the Editorial Staff in the compilation of the map and the Editorial Notes. More than 800 iron ore deposits are represented on the map which covers 42 countries in 16 map sheets. All deposits of importance, either actually being mined or recently abandoned, are included. Deposits of only genetic or historic interest are also shown. Detailed information on the Map of Iron Ore Deposits of Europe - to its structure, arrangement and background data - can be found in the Explanatory Notes to the Map

  • The series 'Geoscience Map of Germany 1: 2 000 000' contains easily comprehensible maps on various topics. The base map "Geology" shows Germany and the adjacent areas in 30 units, differentiated by the formation age. In addition, areas with igneous and metamorphic (formed by shaping) rocks are reported. 5 different types of lines provide an overview of fracture zones in the subsurface. In addition, the expansions of the last ice age are included. A schematic cross section through the surface from south to north shows the structure of the older basement and its cover by younger rocks. It is available in two versions: one with a simple topography and once, for better orientation, with the network of interstate highways. The map 'Important deposits' shows deposits and mines of energy raw materials, metal materials, industrial minerals and salts based on a simplified, time-structured geology within Germany.

The geology is differenciated in stratigraphy, igneous and metamorphic rocks. In addition there are two legend sheets and a title sheet. The language of the series is French.

  • The Land use-stratified soil map of Germany 1:1,000,000 (BUEK1000N), Version 2.31, part forest soils, was subdivided according to the main land cover types (forest, cropland and grassland) using the 1990 CORINE Land Cover data. However, it cannot be expected that the legend of this soil map is valid for the CORINE areas (in this project processed as vector data with the resolution of ca. 0,25 km2) rather than for larger patches (ca. 4 km2). Thus, the land cover data had to be generalized. The original land-cover classes were first aggregated into 14 combined classes, then generalized to at least 4 km2 patches, and finally intersected with the soil map units. The unchanged original soil map units were thus geometrically subdivided by land cover. Soil regions, soil landscapes and European climatic zones were also considered in order to stratify the legend of this new digital database. In another working step, the descriptions of the soil legend units were re-written in order to distinguish and to describe typical soil types and soil profiles under forest, cropland and grassland. For that, data from the BGR soil profile data base and from higher resolution soil maps as well as soil profiles from the national forest soil condition monitoring were evaluated. The results are stored in a relational database which is part of the BGR soil information system “FISBo BGR”. An additional, 54-page booklet with explanations for BUEK1000N can be purchased at the GeoCenter Touristik Medien Service GmbH in D-70565 Stuttgart.

  • BGR conducted within the project „Pilot study for a detailled airborne geophysical mapping“ (DAGLA) an airborne survey near the city of Bremerhaven. The survey area Bremerhaven (2001) is bounded by the settlements Dorum and Neuenwalde to the north, Bederkesa and Wehdel to the east, Lunestedt and Stotel to the south, and by the river Weser and the North Sea to the west. The size of the area is about 550 km². The area was surveyed with 13 flights totalling to 2227 line-km (588,067 survey points). The nominal separation of the 107 ESE-WNW lines and 26 NNE-SSW tie lines was 250 m and 1000 m, respectively. The maps display the total count, the (equivalent) content of potassium, uranium and thorium as well as the exposure rate at ground.

  • The map of the annual rate of capillary rise from the groundwater zone into the effective rooting zone of the soils in Germany gives an overview of the amount of groundwater that passes through evapotranspiration to the surface.

  • The International Hydrogeological Map of Europe, scale 1:1,500,000 is a series of general hydrogeological maps comprising 25 map sheets with explanatory notes, covering the whole European continent and parts of the Near East. The national contributions to this map series were compiled by hydrogeologists and experts in related sciences of the countries concerned under the auspices of the International Association of Hydrogeologists (IAH) and its Commission on Hydrogeological Maps (COHYM). The project is supported by the Commission for the Geological Map of the World (CGMW).The scientific editorial work is supported financially by the Government of the Federal Republic of Germany through the Bundesanstalt für Geowissenschaften und Rohstoffe (BGR) and by the United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization (UNESCO). These organizations are responsible for the cartography, printing and publication of the map sheets and explanatory notes.The series of hydrogeological maps seeks to represent the hydrogeological setting of Europe as a whole without regard to political boundaries. Together with the information presented in the accompanying explanatory notes, the map can be used for scientific purposes, for large-scale regional planning and as a basis for detailed hydrogeological mapping.
