Spatial loess distribution in the eastern Carpathian Basin: Hungary
The provided geodata contain the digitized areas covered by loess and loess-like sediments in Hungary (after Balogh et al. 1956) and the respective coverage in the border region of northwest Romania which has been derived from geoscientific maps and data: soil type and texture after Florea et al. (1971), land cover data after CLC 2006 published by EEA (2012) and geomorphometric data based on the DEM SRTM 1 Arc-Second Global provided by USGS (2015)). Therefrom, digitized and reclassified soil types after the Romanian soil map, and two raster datasets of derived morphometric indices are published. Additionally, a merged shapefile of the resulting loess and loess-like sediments, designed for a scale of about 1:500.000, is published.
Digitized areas covered by loess and loess-like sediments in Hungary after the geological map of Hungary 1:300.000 (Balogh et al. 1956). The sediments were reclassified collectively according to Koch & Neumeister (2005). For the denotation of the content see Tab. 2.
Further information on the methods for generation of the provided geodata is published in Lindner et al. (2017); Geodata set of 'Spatial loess distribution in the eastern Carpathian Basin: a novel approach based on geoscientific maps and data'.
The publication includes a map compendium.
