Geological and geothematic maps

Document Actions

 

ISPRA acquired the function of State Cartographer's Office, previously hold by the Geological Survey of Italy, as provided by Law 68/1960. The Institute makes new surveys, updates and publishes the Geological Map of Italy at various scales.

The geological map is the cartographic representation of the information acquired during a long work on the ground. The process goes from the survey of data to the laboratory analysis and subsequent data processing. The information is then transferred to the corresponding topographic base in order to describe, through the use of conventional symbols, the exact stratigraphic position, age, petrographic characteristics of the investigated geological formations, in connection to the genesis and to the relationship with adjacent rocks.

The geological sheets are on sale at ISPRA, at the Istituto Poligrafico e Zecca dello Stato (Italian Polygraphic Institute) and authorized bookshops. They are also available at ISPRA Library.

In addition, flash format geological sheets are available on ISPRA website:
