Geodata of 'Loess distribution and related Quaternary sediments in the Carpathian Basin'

DOI

This set of data depicts the distribution of loess and related Quaternary sediments in the Carpathian Basin. Using a Geographic Information System (GIS), we compiled a map showing the distribution of loess and related Quaternary sediments in the Carpathian Basin, with unprecedented detail. We vectorized and analyzed existing data (mainly from geological maps) and combined and transferred these into a common (loess) sediment classification system. This cross-border map shows the distribution of eolian sediments in the Carpathian Basin at a scale of 1:1,500,000. Here, we publish the original data set used in Lehmkuhl et al. (2018). The reader is referred to the article regarding information on geoprocessing and standardization. Furthermore, we attribute the shapefiles of the used source maps by various authors, in order to facilitate further usage. Please quote the dataset and article when using this data.
