Database of Geological Maps
A geologic map is a special-purpose map made to show geological features. A map is a symbolic depiction emphasizing relationships between geologic features of the surface of the earth or part of it and its boundaries. A map is created by appropriate projection, a fixed scale, symbols and specific terms drawn on paper or in digital formats. The map goes through several developmental stages to be prepared in digital form, consisting of several different plates, which are easy to deal with according to the desired purpose. A map is a key pillar of many of mineral resources, oil, water distribution and the reporting of areas exposed to environmental and geological hazards. Topographic and geoscience maps are among the most important tools used to determine the quantitative measurements of changes in maximum and minimum elevations within specific regions characterized by geomorphological phenomena and geological environments of different origin, rock and tectonic structures.
