Saarland’s Agricultural Structural Development Plan was created in the 1999–2000 period and constitutes a planning framework for agricultural activities in Saarland.
Alongside the collection of comprehensive data for stocktaking and a status quo analysis, the expert opinion also includes guidance for the future development of agriculture and therefore also for the development of rural spaces as well as cultural landscape use.
From the starting point of a state-wide survey map containing an overview of agrarian spaces, agricultural facilities larger than 30 ha and proposed areas for agricultural priority and reserved areas, zooming further into the map also reveals additional layers of information. These include a detailed representation of spatial structure including information about real-world usage, suitability for agricultural use and an optional overlay showing refuges in agricultural areas.
The display of map content is adjusted to match the current zoom level and a variety of background maps are also available (1:25,000, 1:50,000 topographical maps).
