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