It is described the contribution of geomorphologic documents and criteria and methodology used for the implementation of Geotourist maps, at different scales, in four areas; one of them is located in the Alps and three in the Modena Apennines (Northern Italy). As concern the alpine sector, the study area is located in a sector of the Dolomites where some geological-geomorphological itineraries have been planned. As concern the Modena Apennines, one sector is the hilly area of the Natural Reserve of Salse di Nirano. Two mountain sectors, elevations consist of the upper Tagliole Valley and Mt. Cimone area, located within the Frignano Park. This abstract illustrates the cartographic documents designed suitably. This leaflet combines the most evident geological-geomorphological aspects with fundamental tourism information and emphasise only the landscape elements that the tourist can directly recognise and observe on his own. The goal was to produce maps that could be easily interpreted by tourists to help them understand the landscape.
