Elevation data is obtained from the <a href="http://www2.jpl.nasa.gov/srtm/">Shuttle Radar Surveying Mission</a> (SRTM).</p> <p>Covering only Europe we find <a href="http://mtbmap.cz/">MTBmap</a>, a project that arises from the need to make cartography oriented towards the realization of routes for cycling and hiking. The official routes are highlighted, using different colors according to their characteristics.</p> <p><a href="http://www.4umaps.eu/mountain-bike-hiking-bicycle-outdoor-topographic-map.aspx">4UMaps </a>is a project specialized in representing the data that can be useful for trekking, climbing, mountain biking or other outdoor sports. In its cartography, the elements in natural spaces stand out, such as: roads, tracks, peaks, fountains, elevation lines, natural elements, etc.</p> <p>One of the most interesting projects but unfortunately has declined and has not been updated since 2013 is <a href="http://beta.map1.eu/#zoom=5&amp;lat=50.083&amp;lon=14.41&amp;layers=B">Map1. eu</a>.  The goal is ambitious, try to recreate an online map with OSM data similar to high quality prints.</p> <p>Extracting the characteristics of each route, the <a href="http://waymarkedtrails.org/">Waymarked Trails</a> project is nourished. Specialized in obtaining routes for hiking, cycling, mountain biking, horseback riding, skiing or skating. Having a certain homologation in the field as they have been marked and prepared for their practices. An example would be the Pilgrim's Way to Santiago, where we can observe its routes and even download the track from its website.</p> <p>Another project that offers us thematic layers is <a href="http://korona.geog.uni-heidelberg.de/">GIScience Heidelberg</a> where we can project on the map different elements such as contours of level, shaded relief, roads or administrative boundaries.</p> <p>Little by little we will try to complete the catalogue of projects that take advantage of the data offered by OSM.</p></div> <div class="field field--name-field-etiquetas field--type-entity-reference field--label-above"> <div class="field--label">etiquetas</div> <div class="field--items"> <div class="field--item"><a href="/taxonomy/term/13" hreflang="es">OSM</a></div> <div class="field--item"><a href="/taxonomy/term/31" hreflang="es">world map</a></div> </div> </div> Sat, 25 Nov 2017 10:27:14 +0000 Cartografo 17 at http://www.geamap.com Visor del mapa topográfico de España http://www.geamap.com/visor-topografico-de-espana <span>Topographic map viewer of Spain</span> <span><span lang="" about="/user/1" typeof="schema:Person" property="schema:name" datatype="">Cartografo</span></span> <span>Mon, 01/22/2018 - 08:59</span> <div class="field field--name-field-imagen field--type-image field--label-hidden field--item"> <a href="http://www.geamap.com/sites/default/files/2017-11/mapa%20topografico%20espa%C3%B1a_0.JPG"><img src="/sites/default/files/styles/large/public/2017-11/mapa%20topografico%20espa%C3%B1a_0.JPG?itok=df7gpbIu" width="480" height="308" alt="Topographic map of Spain" typeof="foaf:Image" class="img-responsive" /> </a> </div> <div class="field field--name-body field--type-text-with-summary field--label-hidden field--item"><p>The topographic map is made from the different sheets that the NGI has been elaborating to complete the map of the Spanish territory.

On the other hand, on the Earth's crust that we can observe, geological faults and volcanoes are the result of these forces on a larger scale, giving rise to these seismic movements. The collection of data from all over the world, such as those provided by the <a href="http://www.emsc-csem.org/#2">Euro-Mediterranean Seismological Centre</a>, ends up drawing a world map of all the earthquakes that occur, obtaining a catalogue of the last two weeks with a magnitude greater than 4 degrees on the Richter scale. It shows us the most active areas at present and how the planet draws a series of lines that divide the earth's lithosphere into different plates.</p></div> <div class="field field--name-field-etiquetas field--type-entity-reference field--label-above"> <div class="field--label">etiquetas</div> <div class="field--items"> <div class="field--item"><a href="/taxonomy/term/38" hreflang="es">earthquakes</a></div> <div class="field--item"><a href="/taxonomy/term/31" hreflang="es">world map</a></div> <div class="field--item"><a href="/taxonomy/term/39" hreflang="es">historic</a></div> </div> </div> Tue, 05 Dec 2017 09:14:38 +0000 Cartografo 29 at http://www.geamap.com Visor cartográfico de EEUU http://www.geamap.com/eeuu <span>US cartographic viewer</span> <span><span lang="" about="/user/1" typeof="schema:Person" property="schema:name" datatype="">Cartografo</span></span> <span>Mon, 12/11/2017 - 14:31</span> <div class="field field--name-field-imagen field--type-image field--label-hidden field--item"> <a href="http://www.geamap.com/sites/default/files/2017-12/EEUU-cartografia.jpg"><img src="/sites/default/files/styles/large/public/2017-12/EEUU-cartografia.jpg?itok=mzexdNq6" width="480" height="326" alt="Map of the United States Washington" typeof="foaf:Image" class="img-responsive" /> </a> </div> <div class="field field--name-field-etiquetas field--type-entity-reference field--label-above"> <div class="field--label">etiquetas</div> <div class="field--items"> <div class="field--item"><a href="/taxonomy/term/21" hreflang="es">EEUU</a></div> <div class="field--item"><a href="/taxonomy/term/5" hreflang="es">Topográfico</a></div> <div class="field--item"><a href="/visor" hreflang="es">Visor</a></div> </div> </div> Fri, 01 Dec 2017 16:47:56 +0000 Cartografo 21 at http://www.geamap.com
