GEODE - Continuous digital geological map of Spain , scale 1:50.000

This map shows the result of the cartographic homogenization of the MAGNA series (The National Geological Map 1:50.000 scale). Due to the lengthy execution of this series, there are many differences between the first and the last maps. ir initial and final phases regarding allocation criteria geological units, level of detail, continuity of geological units and structures at the edges of sheets, codification and symbology are noticed. In order to correct coding and symbol problems, differences in the level of detail, geological units and structures continuity, in 2004 the GEODE project began. This project addressed the creation of a 1:50.000 scale continuous digital geological map. The project includes 19 regional projects linked to their corresponding geological areas. The three main goals of GEODE project are: • To provide cartographic continuity to the geological sheets of MAGNA series within each region. • To generate a unified legend of geological units for each region. • To adapt the geological features to a unified topographic map, created within the GEODE project from the Spanish Topographic Map 1:25000 of the National Geographic Institute (IGN).
