Landscape and Soil
Soil map 3D
The DINOloket, an open data portal of the Geological Survey of the Netherlands, provides data and information about the subsurface of the Netherlands. The first 50m below surface is mapped based on 2D maps of the top and bottom of the soil formations. By combining these sources of information, a 3D subsurface model can be created. All the different formations can be turned on or off individually. As certain estimations and interpolations have been applied during the mapping process, the map may not be suitable for thorough academic analysis but is certainly useful for getting a first impression.
Earthquakes in the North of the Netherlands is a hot topic in the media. But is it also a hot research topic at the University? It certainly is! We are getting more and more questions about data on earthquakes. That's why we prepared the data for you. We are currently working on improvements of our 3D soil model to make it suitable for analysis of earthquake risks.
This map is based on Open Street Map data, the angle of each road fragment is calculated and visualised by a color ramp of 90 degrees. All perpendicularly crossing roads have the same colours, this way neigbourhoods can be easily recognised. The same has been done for waterways in the Netherlands, as can be seen in the map below.
