01.02 Impervious Soil Coverage

Map Description

This map presents the degree of impervious soil coverage, i.e. the degree to which soil is cov-ered with impermeable materials, expressed in % of the reference area (block or block seg-ment area). Generally, the degree of impervious coverage decreases from the city centre to-ward the outskirts. Exceptions here are the centres of boroughs Spandau and Köpenick, which were independent cities prior to 1920.
