Mapping Geology in Italy

The purpose of this volume is to illustrate, through contributions from Italian, European and extra-European Authors, the conceptual and methodological procedures that control the field geological surveys and their mapping layout.
In it have been tested different methodologies in the acquisition and reproduction of cartographic data, designed to cover many areas of Earth Sciences. The contributes are organized into subject areas, ranging from the analysis of area involved by Quaternary geology and morphogenesis or by recent and current volcanic successions, tectono-stratigraphic analysis of classic Meso-Cenozoic Apennine successions, up to the study of Alpine deformation of the basement. Among others, stand out the development of methods for three-dimensional representation that facilitate the comprehension of the geological structures.
The conclusion of the work is entrusted to the mapping of two particular geological sites: considering that Italy is a region in which geological history is one of the most comprehensive and complex in Europe, these examples represent an element of awareness and geological heritage protection.
The work is not presented as a map collection, but it presents and illustrates, in an educational and informative way new methodological models, driving the reader through the various paths of recognition and interpretation of the basis for the mapping.
The value of the work, as well as the careful layout, is the educational address given to provide scholars, researchers, technicians and students of different disciplines, a modern tool for geospatial analysis.
