Abstract

In the modern geological mapping activities geomatics technologies can facilitate data collection during field survey and avoid practical problems related to the transposition of that data onto topographic maps. This paper describes an innovative tool (the Solid True Ortho-Photo; STOP) for the structured acquisition and recording of geological field survey data that is immediately available in a GIS framework. An experimental software graphical interface has been developed to manage the STOP application during the survey. The benefits of the STOP system were tested by producing a digital map of the Quaternary formations and landforms in a 3-km2 sector of the Rodoretto Valley, a minor tributary of the Germanasca Valley, northwestern Italy.
