In geological mapping activities, geomatics can facilitate data collection during field survey and avoid practical problems related to the transposition of these data onto maps for GIS production.

Abstract

In geological mapping activities, geomatics can facilitate data collection during field survey and avoid practical problems related to the transposition of these data onto maps for GIS production. The Solid True Orthophoto (STOP) can reduce these difficulties using a dedicated instrument developed by the Authors called GSTOP. It can run on laptops or tablets, managing a direct connection with low cost navigation sensors in real time, to define its location and attitude. The user can produce a 3D solid image in order to compare the effective scene to record notes and to acquire evidence. GSTOP has been used to produce a geomorphological map of the Rodoretto Valley (Germanasca Valley, NW Italy), reconstructing its Quaternary evolution. Keywords : , solid true orthophoto, .
