​For describing and analysing a landscape, data from various disciplines are necessary for topography, land use, relief, soil, geology, water system, fauna and flora, weather and climate. A wide range of digital geodata is available (including remote sensing data). Landscape data from public institutions can usually be used for research purposes after the conclusion of a user contract. One task of the Working Group Geodata is the provision of a common, quality-assured, consistent and documented geodata basis for landscape research at ZALF, namely on different aggregation levels and taking into account the different prior knowledge of the users in dealing with geodata. The focus is on data from external sources, but also includes the management of the spatial reference of ZALF research data. The tasks of the Working Group Geodata also include the provision of Geographical Information Systems (GIS) as well as advice on the application of GIS and the use of geodata.

The BMBF-financed BonaRes Data Centre is also part of the Geodata Working Group ( The BonaRes Data Centre, which is coordinated by ZALF, has established a data infrastructure for soil and agricultural research data in Germany in recent years. This includes the collection of metadata and data, the registration, archiving and provision of research data and metadata via a data portal.
