  • Multi-temporal UAV based repeat monitoring of rivers sensitive to flood
    J. Maps (IF 2.365) Pub Date : 2020-09-24
    Orkan Özcan; Okan Özcan

    Multi-temporal repeat monitoring of flood-vulnerable rivers is crucial due to rapid alteration of morphological properties of in-channel landforms. Besides, the characteristics of the river crossing bridges may deteriorate due to flood induced scouring around bridge piles or due to flood loads. Thus, in this study high-resolution topography of the study region was acquired during two consecutive years

  • Hal Lindsey’s geopolitical future: towards a cartographic theory of anticipatory arrows
    J. Maps (IF 2.365) Pub Date : 2020-09-24
    Tristan Sturm

    Hal Lindsey & Carlson’s, 1970 book, The Late Great Planet Earth, was the best-selling non-fiction book of the 1970s. In it, using the eschatology of premillennial dispensationalism commonly believed by American evangelicals, he conflates biblical prophecy with current geopolitical conflicts. He exploits the uncertainty of the nuclear age, civil rights movement, and ‘wars and rumours of wars’ in Asia

  • Geomorphology of landslide–flood-critical areas in hilly catchments and urban areas for EWS (Feltrino Stream and Lanciano town, Abruzzo, Central Italy)

    Jakub Lysek; Jiří Pánek; Tomáš Lebeda

    The mapping of election results has long been a popular topic among cartographers, journalists, data scientists and infographic authors. However, their work usually concludes with simple visualizations of a single election, and in most cases only the winning party is represented. Can we tell the story of a political party over two decades via maps? What were the reasons for the rise and fall of such

    Landslides in the Podsljeme area of the City of Zagreb cause significant economic losses, which have been increasing over the last several decades due to the urbanisation of hilly areas and the influence of climate changes. An airborne LiDAR digital terrain model (DTM) with a spatial resolution of 30 × 30 cm was used to prepare a landslide inventory map of the pilot area (21 km2) with more than 700

    A micro-relief map (1:90,000 scale) and a geomorphological map (1:25,000 scale) of the central sector of the Po Plain (northern Italy) are presented. The geomorphological map represents fluvial and anthropogenic landforms as well as the distribution of the textures of superficial alluvial deposits. It resulted from the integration of different study methods, including remote sensing data analysis,

    In this paper, we present a new Bouguer gravity map of the Northern Tuscan offshore (central Italy), based on original gravity data acquired on the islands of the Tuscan Archipelago. Our dataset integrates 274 unpublished gravity field measurements with 126 available marine gravity data of the northern Tyrrhenian Sea. The Bouguer anomaly map shows a westward and southward increase of the regional gravity

    The extensive analysis of remote-sensed data (among which ALS-derived images) and fieldwork carried out in the Trieste Karst (N–E Italy) have shed light on archaeological landscapes largely unknown until recent years. The chronological definition of this complex palimpsest was based on the collection of findings associated to the archeological evidence, shape and orientation of detected structures

  • Plants and animals in the oikonyms of Lithuania

    Two toponymical maps presented in this paper show 2332 inhabited places of Lithuania that have names (oikonyms) associated with vegetation and animals. The maps and the dataset are the outcomes of a project that is aimed at combining the outcomes of professional onomastic research with an environment that fosters exploration. The oikonyms were extracted from the reference base dataset of Lithuania

  • Selective migration of population in functional urban regions of Slovakia
    J. Maps (IF 2.365) Pub Date : 2019-09-12
    Loránt Pregi, Ladislav Novotný

    Majority of research on urban development perceive migration as internally homogeneous phenomenon that influences growth and spatial redistribution of population. This enables to identify certain general migration patterns, but understanding regularities and consequences requires looking at internal structure of migration. This paper aims to visualise the impact of selective migration to the population

  • High-resolution bathymetry of the Alderney Race and its geological and sedimentological description (Raz Blanchard, northwest France)

    Lucille Furgerot, Yohann Poprawski, Marc Violet, Emmanuel Poizot, Pascal Bailly du Bois, Mehdi Morillon, Yann Mear

    We present a high-resolution 1:15,000 bathymetric map (Main map) of Alderney Race located offshore of northwestern France, with the strongest currents in Europe. We use this map, underwater video transects and Shipek grabs to improve geological maps previously published. We distinguished Proterozoic crystalline rocks, Paleozoic and Cretaceous sedimentary rocks on the present-day sea floor. Some structures

  • Glacial geomorphology of the Šumava / Bayerischer Wald mountains, Central Europe
    J. Maps (IF 2.365) Pub Date : 2019-09-10
    David Krause, Martin Margold

    During Quaternary glacial periods, the Šumava / Bayerischer Wald mountains were subject to mountain glaciations. Recent studies have focussed mainly on the several well-developed cirques. However, the glacial geomorphology of the mountain range as a whole has not yet been mapped from digital data. Here we use high-resolution digital elevation models to identify over 300 erosional and 40 depositional

  • The morpho-sedimentology of an artificial roadstead (Cherbourg, France)

    Because of its size and geographical position, the Cherbourg roadstead appears as a favourable site for Marine Renewable Energy (MRE) industry. As a result, Cherbourg harbour has undergone profound changes (2015 and 2016) due to the installation of industrial infrastructures to service the needs of expanding MRE further offshore. However, little is known about the morpho-sedimentary distribution and

    An increasing number of activities compete for space in the Norwegian coastal zone, making access to detailed seabed information particularly valuable. We present a suite of thematic marine base maps of the near-shore areas of five municipalities in west Norway (567 km2; at 62°N/5°E). This set of full-coverage seabed maps includes sediment grain size, seabed terrain (shaded relief), slope, sediment
