Biotope Types 2013

Statistical Base

Surface mapping and aerial image evaluation (primary data)

Between 2001 and 2013, the Senate Department for Urban Development and the Environment contracted for 64 landscape mapping projects.

All forest areas, Natura 2000 areas, nature protection areas and other areas of Berlin particularly valuable for conservation were covered by surface biotope mapping (inspection of the areas). The non-wooded landscapes were covered by aerial image biotope type mapping; particularly protected or valuable biotopes were then checked by surface mapping.

The following sources were used for the collection of primary data:

  • Map of Berlin 1 : 5,000 (K5), Borough offices of Berlin, Surveying Office and Senate Department for Urban Development, Sect. III, GeoDatenService
  • Automated Property Land Register (ALK), Senate Department for Urban Development, Sect. III
  • Analogue CIR aerial image slides, 2000 and 2005 and Color aerial images, 2004, 2006, 2007, Digital Orthophotos 1998-2009, Senate Department for Urban Development, Sect. III, Aerial Image Archive
  • Basic Forestry Maps, Berlin Forests, as of 1995-2000.

Secondary data

For a part of the area of Berlin, existing data sources were used, and these data were recoded to biotope types. The following data sources were used for secondary data:

  • Berlin Environmental Atlas, Map 06.07 Urban Structure, 2011 Edition, Senate Department for Urban Development and the Environment, Sect. III
  • Land Register of Green Spaces, Cemeteries and Allotment Gardens, Senate Department for Urban Development and the Environment, Sect. I, 2001-2012
  • Map of Bodies of Water of the Senate Department for Urban Development, Sect. X; 2000-2007
  • Block map 1 : 5,000 (ISU5 Environmental Atlas) as of 2010, Senate Department for Urban Development, Sect. III, City and Environment Information System
