Map 01.15 as of 2013 (Edition 2014)

Explanations and Imprint of the Map
  1. The comprehensive map is based on the Engineer’s Geological Map of Berlin, scale 1 : 5,000, and more edited areas.
  2. The overview map for the Engineer’s Geological Map shows the geology of the loose rock, usually to 10 m depth, in some cases deeper.
  3. Cap layers like topsoil or landfills of less than 5 m thickness are not shown on the map.
  4. Each plot was calculated on the basis of the result of the most recent drillings. That means that the same layer sequences at adjacent bore holes constitute a common geological unit, and are distinguished from other adjacent layer sequences by surface boundaries. Generally, the greater the density of the holes in an area, the higher the accuracy. At the surface, boundaries of areas may be affected by such geomorphological factors as dunes, plateau edges, bog depressions, etc.
  5. In the overview map of the Engineer’s Geological Map, the upper horizon is shown on the surface with stratigraphy, petrography and genesis. The thickness is shown by different colour intensities of the primary colour. The following depth gradations have been selected:
    < 2 m (light shade)
    2 - 5 m (medium shade)
    5 - 10 m  (dark shade)
  6. The following graphic gives an overview of the edited areas with the map sheet cutting of the "Karte von Berlin 1 : 5,000" (K 5). The areas with underlined numbers of the sheets are also published as engineergeological maps in the scale 1 : 5,000.
