Short summary
This paper analyzes differences in the performance of the indirect and direct mapping method to derive 3-D soil hydraulic maps. Maps of saturated water content, field capacity and wilting point are presented for a 5775 km2 catchment at 100 m resolution. Advantages and disadvantages of the two methods are discussed. The absolute difference in soil water retention values is less than 0.025 cm3 cm−3 between maps derived with indirect and direct methods for 65–86 % of the catchment.
