Summary

DESCRIPTION - DATA SOURCES Cartographical Data: Contours, Altitude points - Topographic maps (H.M.G.S.) Isobaths, Depth points - Topographic maps (H.M.G.S.), Hydrographic maps, Field measurements Road Network (primary, secondary) - Topographic maps (H.M.G.S.), Local authorities Drainage system, Drainage basins - Topographic maps (H.M.G.S.)Geological formations - Geological maps (I.G.M.E.) Tectonic structure - Geological maps (I.G.M.E.)Lithology - Geological formations Land Use - Corine maps, Field work, Satellite / Aerial photo interpretation Geomorphological Data (planation surfaces, karstic formations, buttes, tobolos, valleys, gorges, knick points, etc) - Field work (GPS), Satelite / Aerial photo interpretation Measurements: Coastal slopes - Field work (GPS)Bathymetry - Field work (sonar/GPS) Coastal material - Field work (GPS), Aerial photo interpretation Archaeological sites (GPS) - Field work (GPS)Gridded Data: Relief (DEM) - GIS contour vector layer Slope - GIS contour vector layer Aspect - GIS contour vector layer. The amount of data, depends on the region. The quality of the data varies. Generally we try to keep accuracy over 90%.
