Subsoil Databases

Subsoil Database

The Subsoil Database is an attempt to homogenise a broad range of databases regarding subsoil and water resources, such as boreholes from local administrative authorities or stratigraphic profiles from surveys. The database is updated periodically and is also to be made available in the form of a web-mapping service.  read more

Geothematic Survey Database

The documentation made available is the result of a major operation to computerise the geothematic data held by the local administrative authorities, which began in 2008. The main aim of the project was to collect and implement the local Strategic Plans (SP) in a digital archive, so as to provide a geotechnical and hydro-geological outline of the region, municipal district by municipal district. ... read more

Geothermal Database

In response to an ever-increasing demand for information on its territory, the Region of Tuscany has undertaken a series of activities designed to make geothermal data available and serviceable for as many users as possible. These activities seek to homogenise a Database of Geothermal Boreholes and Springs (DGBS) so as to centralize handling of a considerable quantity of data. ... read more


Subsoil Database

The Subsoil Database is an attempt to homogenise a broad range of databases regarding subsoil and water resources, such as boreholes from local administrative authorities or stratigraphic profiles from surveys. The database is updated periodically and is also to be made available in the form of a web-mapping service.
To date, the Subsoil Database collects and homogenises data on boreholes and abstractions for which applications have been made for concessions and/or authorizations from local administrative authorities. In addition to the boreholes of the ten Provinces of Tuscany and of the Circondario Empolese - Valdelsa district, there are also data on the springs (source: Provinces) and piezometers (source: Centro Funzionale Regionale and the region's river basin authorities).

During 2012 the data validation phase will be completed on study areas aimed at supporting concomitant geological projects. In 2011, implementation of the geognostic investigations and surveys of the ex-Rimin database and other sources was completed.

Geothematic Survey Database

The documentation made available is the result of a major operation to computerise the geothematic data held by the local administrative authorities, which began in 2008. The main aim of the project was to collect and implement the local Strategic Plans (SP) in a digital archive, so as to provide a geotechnical and hydro-geological outline of the region, municipal district by municipal district. The SP is accompanied by geological, geotechnical and hydro-geological documentation, produced by homogenising and summarising the available data, in line with current legislation regarding land planning and the defence of environmental resources. It constitutes a coherent and complete source of information to be exploited through circulation and digital publication.

Hence the Geothematic Survey Database (GSD) should be more narrowly viewed as a digital archive, due both to the type of data it contains, and to the type of information that can be obtained from it. The GSD encompasses 285 source projects, which are in turn the consolidation of geological and technical investigations carried out as part of various planning activities and interventions throughout the region; the majority of source projects are Strategic Plans, but there is also documentation from the ex-Rimin geo-mineral archives, investigations relating to the ViDEPI oil exploration project and the Region of Tuscany's VEL project (assessment of local impacts).

The GSD includes some 40,000 technical appendices from the investigations, subdivided into geological and technical reports, geothematic maps and geotechnical investigations, and for most of these a spot or linear location is given, depending on the type (e.g., survey, seismic profile, etc.). .

Viewing on Google Earth 

The links below offer the possibility to download kml files with the locations of the spot and linear investigations, and the location of the georeferenced maps in the GSD.
Once the kml files have been saved on a computer or opened directly using the request window, they will be automatically loaded on Google Earth, which must previously have been installed on the same computer.
 
Documents regarding the investigations can be downloaded by clicking on the symbols representing the different types of maps and investigations, and are available in ‘pdf’, 'ecw' and ‘jpeg 2000’ formats.

Geothermal Database

In response to an ever-increasing demand for information on its territory, the Region of Tuscany has undertaken a series of activities designed to make geothermal data available and serviceable for as many users as possible. These activities seek to homogenise a Database of Geothermal Boreholes and Springs (DGBS) so as to centralize handling of a considerable quantity of data.
The DGBS is part of a collection of geothermal investigations in the broadest sense, including geological, geotechnical, geophysical and hydrogeological investigations both in situ and in the laboratory.

The DGBS falls within the domain of activities specified in the convention between the Centro di GeoTecnologie (CGT) at Siena University and the Region of Tuscany.

It set out from existing archives supplied by the Region of Tuscany (Energy and Mining Sector) and CNR/IGG in Pisa, which were then collated, elaborated and validated. The LAMMA Consortium contributed to the project by performing the preliminary elaboration of the aforementioned databases and publishing them online.

The main information from the DGBS is available for consultation via Google Earth, and is accessible using the link below.
