Description

The aim of the project is to study the principal characteristics of relief with an emphasis on relief forms. On the basis of the analysis of the dominant relief forms based on the use of the geographical information system, we intend to elaborate a modern classification of relief. Previous relief classifications were based on a subjective and mostly only qualitative approach. The new approach will hopefully lead to a leap in quality compared with the earlier classification of relief.
