IT systems to document protected areas

We use geographic information systems, which store data about train lines and surrounding land and all digitally available information on protected areas in Germany. This enables us to quickly identify the points of contact between nature and DB Groupʼs tracks and rights of way. These findings are important for our planning. There are different restrictions and con­ditions in each protected area, which are described in protected area ordinances. These are stored in our system and are taken into account when planning construction and maintenance work.


There may be overlaps between conservation areas.
