Geologischer Atlas der Schweiz 1:25000 – Profile

The GA25-Profile dataset (GA25_CS) is a compilation of the cross sections published together with the Geological Atlas 1:25,000. It depicts the cross section tracks and contains metadata on the cross sections. The given year of issue corresponds to the publication year of the respective explanatory notes. The cross sections represented by the tracks were extracted from the published cross section plates and, if possible, saved individually along with the entire plate legend and scale as a PDF. Since the legend always refers to the entire plate, it is likely that not all elements of the legend appear in the individual cross section. In a few cases, plates with very closely spaced cross sections cannot be subdivided into single cross sections. In these cases, the entire plate is shown for each group of the cross section tracks.
