Thematic mapping

The GIS sector of LaMMA works in partnership with the Region of Tuscany to produce thematic maps, providing information on a number of specific aspects of a given territory. The different phenomena, be they anthropic or physical, regarding quality or quantity, with reference to the earth's surface, can be geographically illustrated in the form of thematic mapping.

Thematic mapping constitutes a fundamental knowledge base for land planning and the delineation of territorial intervention. Furthermore, it fulfils a key role in understanding phenomena, as it offers a quick and effective way of viewing and memorising the variables studied, and, if properly done, can provide answers to questions on many levels, facilitating a gradual process of learning and understanding.
