Modeling of the content of topsoil organic carbon (%) (ISO 10694) in croplands (0-25 cm), permanent grasslands (0-10 cm), vineyards (0-30 cm) and forests (0-20 cm). Based on soil analysis data collected between 2012-2014 (agriculture, vineyards) and 1998-2001 (forest). Data not transformed into INSPIRE data model
Interpolation (Kriging) of the pH content (CaCl2) in agricultural soils. Based on soil analysis data from 2009 to 2014. Data not transformed into INSPIRE data model
This dataset contains the Soil map of the Grand-Duchy of Luxembourg at scale of 1:100.000. It contains a classification of the complete territory in 29 soil mapping units (SMU) containing information on texture, stoniness, nature of coarse fragments, drainage and simplified pedogenetic classification. The dataset has been published in 1969.

A medium combustion plant is any technical device with a rated thermal input of 1 MW or more and less than 50 MW in which combustible products are oxidised in order to use the heat thus produced, such as combustion plants, engines and gas turbines. All medium combustion installations must be registered with the Environmental Administration, which keeps a public register with information on each installation. The operating conditions and the obligations of the operators of these installations are laid down in the Grand-Ducal Regulation of 24 April 2018 on the limitation of emissions from medium combustion installations.

According to the water framework directive (Directive 2000/60/CE), the biological parameter fish are monitored in surface water bodies in order to determine the ecological status. Fish react sensitively to the continuity and the hydrological flow of surface water. Fish are therefor sampled in the SWB which have deficits here. The methodology applied for sampling is the standard NF EN 14962:2006 "water quality − guidance on the scope and selection of fish sampling methods".
The quiet urban landscape areas include relatively large, continuous open spaces of at least regional importance with a high recreational function and corresponding development for leisure and recreation. Its importance lies in the balancing function to the noisy and densely populated areas of the agglomeration of Luxembourg. The quiet urban landscape close to the residential area allows, for example, extensive walks with only occasional crossing of areas with higher noise levels.
The Permanent Grassland layer shows for agricultural parcels, if, based on the farmers’ declaration in preceding years, an area is to be considered as permanent grassland or arable land. If the number of years of green cover is 5 or less, the parcel is considered as arable land. If the number is 6 or more, the parcel is considered as permanent grassland. Attention: If the number of years of green cover is 5 and the parcel is used as grassland in the current year, the parcel becomes permanent grassland in that year. The Permanent Grassland layer, in conjunction with the land use declared in a claim year, allows to classify parcels as permanent grassland or arable land for that given year. This information is required to manage and control by cross checks certain area aid schemes. The Permanent Grassland layer is therefore to be considered as an element of the Integrated Administration and Control System (IACS), a set of comprehensive administrative and on the spot checks on subsidy applications, which is managed by the Member States.
Landscape features on the reference parcels (LPIS). The landscape features layer is one of the Ecological Focus Areas (EFA) layers with serves to attribute landscape features to land parcels declared in the geospatial aid application GSAA. These areas are taken into account in the framework of the Greening scheme [Article 46 of Regulation (EU) No 1307/2013] and Agri-Environment-Climate-Measures (AECM) [Article 28 of Regulation (EU) No 1305/2013]. Ecological Focus Areas (EFA) are areas designated to bring about benefits for the environment, improve biodiversity and maintain attractive landscapes. EFAs may include landscape features, buffer strips, catch crops, fallow land, areas with nitrogen fixing crops etc. The landscape features layer is part of the Land Parcel Identification System (LPIS). LPIS is a key component of the IACS. It is an IT system based on ortho imagery (aerial or satellite photographs) which records all agricultural parcels in the Member States. It serves two main purposes: to clearly locate all eligible agricultural land contained within reference parcels and to calculate their maximum eligible area (MEA). The LPIS is used for cross checking during the administrative control procedures and as a basis for on the spot checks by the paying agency.
