Abstract

This work describes the contribution of geomorphologic documents and the criteria and methodology used for the implementation of Geo-tourist maps and Environmental-Tourist Maps in three protected areas located in mountain, hilly and plain areas of the Modena Province (Northern Italy).The study mountain area is the upper Tagliole Valley located in the Modena Apennines. It is mainly characterised by glacial and cryogenic landforms. The hilly area is the Natural Reserve of Salse di Nirano located in the Modena Apennines margin. The “Salse” are small mud volcanoes. The third study area is the Natural Oasis of Mirandola Valleys which is characterised by fluvial geomorphologic features and humid environment.Geomorphologic maps and Digital Terrain Models (DTM) have been realized. The Geo-tourist maps, derived from the Geomorphologic maps, combine the most evident geomorphologic features with fundamental tourist information (e.g. parking places, excursion trails, picnic areas, overnight-stay sites, etc…). The goal was to produce maps that could be easily interpreted by tourists and help them to understand the landscape.The Geo-Tourist maps and the DTM are the cartographic documents characterising Environmental-Tourist maps. These are thematic pocket foldable maps printed on both sides with illustration notes both in English and Italian.The Environmental -Tourist maps are part of the initiatives adopted for improving the knowledge, fruition and appraisal of the environment of protected areas. These studies witness how geomorphologic investigations can effectively contribute to the elaboration of maps utilizable in the field of environmental tourism.
