Delimitation and attributes that characterize each element of the Inventory of Spaces of Geological Interest of Catalonia. Spaces of geological interest are places of interest, due to their unique and/or representative character, for the study and interpretation of the origin and evolution of large geological domains, including the processes that have shaped them, the climates of the past and their paleobiological evolution in a sufficiently continuous and homogeneous manner throughout its extension, one or more notable and significant characteristics of the geological heritage of a natural region, with geometric or geographical continuity of the characteristic and with the homogeneity of this in all its extension. This set of information was born in 1999 from a collaboration agreement between, at that time, the Department of the Environment of the Generalitat of Catalonia and the Autonomous University of Barcelona.

Boundaries of the natural spaces of Catalonia that form part of the European Natura 2000 network. Natura 2000 is a European ecological network of areas that may have been proposed as special protection areas for birds (ZEPA) in accordance with the Directive 2009/147/CEE, also known as the Birds Directive, and/or as Special Areas of Conservation (ZEC) in accordance with Directive 92/43/CEE, also known as the Habitats Directive. In the first instance, the Government of Catalonia approves the proposal for sites of Community importance (LIC) for the Natura 2000 network of the areas of the Alpine and Mediterranean biogeographical regions. Subsequently, the European Commission adopts the conformity of this proposal and finally the Government of Catalonia declares the LICs as ZECs.
Limits of the figures defined in Law 12/1985, of natural spaces: national park, natural places of national interest, natural reserves and natural parks. It also contains the limits of wildlife reserves defined in Legislative Decree 2/2008, of 15 April, approving the Revised Text of the Animal Protection Act. The limits of each space are established in the legal regulations by which the space is declared or modified.
Limits of the areas of natural interest defined in Decree 328/1992, which approves the Plan of areas of natural interest (PEIN), and any subsequent modifications that may have occurred. This base includes spaces at a scale of 1:50 000 and, in some cases, 1:5 000. The PEIN establishes a network of spaces representative of the rich landscape and biodiversity of the territory of Catalonia, from high mountains to coastal plains, and from Euro-Siberian forests to semi-desert wastelands or marine spaces. The PEIN is the higher level planning instrument that structures the system of protected areas of Catalonia and integrates this system within the whole territory, as it is a sectorial territorial plan framed within the Territorial Plan of Catalonia (1995). Subsequent to its approval, specific modifications to the rules and limits have been approved by decree, as well as extensions or additions of new spaces.
Classification of the situation and current state of irrigation in Catalonia
Water bodies delimitation according to the cyprinids and salmonids family species.
The dataset contains the demarcation of trouts genetic reserves, with their identifier and information on the geographical area in which they stay. The trouts genetic reserve areas (Salmo trutta) are closed basins in which trout populations are native and have their own genetic charcteristics in all individuals.
The Cartography of Controlled Fisheries Zones contains the delimitation of the controlled fishing areas, with their identifier and information on the geographical area in which they are located (river, basin, municipality, etc.), the fishing periods and the corresponding rest days, information on the permits applied (type, modality, arts and baits, maximum number, etc.), and the fishermen's society that collaborates in their management. A controlled exclusive fishery zone is the course, stretch of course or the mass of water in which it is limited the fishing to contribute towards developing a model of sustainable exploitation of the fishing resources based mainly on the natural selfregeneration of the populations of species and the regulation of fishing pressure. They can be with dead or without dead.
The dataset contains the demarcation of the zones of free fishing without death, with its identifier and information on the geographic scope in which they are (river, river basin, municipality, etc.), the corresponding fishing periods, the arts and baits allowed in each area, and the fishermen's society that collaborates in its management. No-kill open fishing areas is a course, section of course or water mass in which the practice of the fishing has to be done on condition of returning immediately to the waters of origin, of the least harmful possible way, all the captured specimens. Fishing license it's the only requisite.
