Until now, only geological overview data (1:750 000) have been available. Geological units are provided with fundamental attribute data like name, age and rock type, and line and point symbols are explained by attributes. References to the map data will be added at a later stage. The map database will continually be updated when newer or better data become available.

In the default menu, check the "geology" layer and extend the submenus. When zooming to the scale of at least 1:320 000, the detailed map data become visible.
