The criteria and methods applied for implementing Geo-Tourist maps in three protected areas of the Modena Province are here described.The study mountain area is the upper Tagliole Valley located in the Modena Apennines. It is comprised within the Frignano Park and is mainly characterized 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 built by emissions of salt water mixed with mud and pushed up by methane coming to surface along ground discontinuities. The third study area is the Natural Oasis of Mirandola Valleys, the lowest depressed area of the Modena plain. It is characterized by fluvial geomorphologic features and humid environment.In order to have detailed information about the physical landscape of the study areas, Geomorphologic maps and Digital Terrain Models (DTM) have been realized. The Geo-Tourist maps were derived (with appropriate simplifications and integrations) from the Geomorphologic maps. The Geo-Tourist maps combine the most evident geomorphological features with fundamental tourist information (parking places, excursion trails, picnic areas, refreshment and 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 DTM and Geo-Tourist maps were the characterizing documents of tourist foldables, pocket-size, front/rear printed Tourist-Environmental maps. These initiatives witness how geomorphologic investigations can contribute to the activities of the Public Administrations aiming to improve the information, fruition and appraisal of protected areas.
