Abstract

The studies collected in this Special Issue summarize many interesting environmental and geocultural issues that can occur in urban areas, providing new perspectives and developments within geomorphological mapping both for scientific and applied. cartographic practice and research. They explore methods and techniques concerning how to map, monitor and assess ancient and recent morphological modifications due to human interventions and their impact on geomorphological processes. As a consequence of these changes in such urban areas, a progressive increase in geohydrological risk with direct and indirect consequences for people is found, evidencing the crucial requirement to provide adequate and useful management indicators for land planners. Therefore, the study of the constraints and values of urban geomorphological evolution represents an urgent need and a challenge for our modern society. Finally, it should also be noted that the geoheritage of the city needs to be preserved, managed, and where appropriate, enhanced as a possible resource to promote tourism and geotourism as well as leisure activities.
