Amsterdam Soil Quality on Google Maps
The Amsterdam City Council Planning Department has used the Google Maps API to provide a map of the city's soil quality.
Bodemkwaliteit Amsterdam displays a number of different zones in Amsterdam, demarcated by soil quality. The map can therefore be used to determine the potential re-use of excavated soil, from the location of its excavation. The different zones on the map are color-coded by type of soil. The green and blue zones on the map indicate cleaner soil and the red zones indicate heavily contaminated soil.
