Glacial Landform Mapping
With the dramatic rise in geomorphological maps and mapping over the last decade there has been a natural progression towards finding more objective, and sometimes automated, techniques and procedures for mapping. Yet manual, interpretive, techniques remain effective and commonly used. It is therefore important that criteria for interpretive mapping are developed, and agreed, in order to facilitate comparability and compatibility of mapped outputs.

To this end the "GMapping Workshop" will present and discuss results from glacial gemorphological mapping by different interpreters for statistically representative synthetic drumlins within a real landscape. This can then inform both the differences/similarities in mapping and quantify the impacts upon the calculation of derived metrics. The key outcomes of this workshop will be the initial development of a set of objective criteria for geomorphological mapping.
