Descripción
This paper describes some research that has been conducted on a topic of growing interest among earth scientists like geodiversity from a cartographic and GIS perspective. Many soil and earth scientists consider that geodiversity measurement and quantification should play a key role when evaluating the ecological, environmental and social value of a territory. This geodiversity project is based on the Spain and the Iberian Peninsula case study. Many earth scientists use multiple mathematical techniques, such as diversity statistics and models, to end up with summary statistics which best describe the general properties of the phenomena. In our study, we will focus in the use of cartography and GIS concepts and tools in order to conduct the modeling and analysis stages. The geodiversity study is based in drainage basins as basic spatial units for the analysis. Additionally, some diversity analysis has been conducted in relation to the 3D components relief zones.
