Abstract : For two regions in West Germany - which resulted from the WES topographic and climatic terrain regionalization - extensive ground truth testing was performed in order to evaluate the relative degrees of similarity of two or more terrain patches with respect to ground mobility conditions. Within the regions investigated for the generic modeling about 30 sites were selected within potentially wet areas for CH, CL, MH, ML and organic soil sites. Selection was based on 1:25.000 scale soil maps, 1:200.000 soil site condition maps as well as site visits.
