Symbols for geomorphologic mapping in high mountains for ArcGIS:GMK

The development of digital geomorphologic maps using GIS lacked suitable symbols for geomorphologic landforms and processes. The collection of symbols proposed here changes this situation by providing symbols and colours for geomorphologic maps. The symbols are available as a symbol style for ArcGIS. The symbols base on the legend for high mountain systems established by Kneisel et al. (Kneisel et al. 1998) within the Working Group on High Mountains in Germany. The colour fills proposed correspond to the idea of process domains established within the GMK 25 legend, created by the national geomorphologic mapping research program in Germany in the 1980`s (Barsch & Liedtke 1980). This symbol set has been created for geomorphologic maps at a 1:25000 scale.
