Best Map Award 2014

The Tatra Mountains during the Last Glacial Maximum


Jerzy Zasadni (AGH University of Science and Technology, Kraków) and Piotr Kłapyta (Jagiellonian University, Kraków)

Journal of Maps, Volume 10, 2014 - Issue 3
Published online: 07 Feb 2014

The Tatra Mountains extend along the border between Slovakia and Poland in the Western Carpathians. Zasadni and Kłapyta have re-evaluated the geomorphological evidence for all Tatra glacial systems, identified in the literature, based on new field mapping and remote sensing data analysis. Utilizing geographic information systems (GIS) and 10 m resolution digital elevation model (DEM) as a base topography, their map has reconstructed, for the first time, the detailed extent and surface geometry of all Tatra LGM (Last Glacial Maximum) glaciers (55 glacier systems, total area ca. 280 km2) based on the distribution of glacial erosional and depositional landforms.
