We are contributing to the International Quaternary Map of Europe (IQUAME 2500). The aim of IQUAME 2500 is to create a digital map of Europe's Quaternary geology; in particular to develop consistency in cross-border mapping. The project is applying the EC INSPIRE Directive for digital mapping standards and is creating new approaches for representing features such as geomorphology and glaciogenic elements. The map includes: geological boundaries and classifications of Quaternary rocks, extent and boundaries of permafrost, last glacial maximum, genetic descriptions of the rocks, faults, key localities (geologically and paleontologically significant sites, anthropological sites, impact craters, etc.) and off-shore geology. Ultimately, the IQUAME project will summarise the current status quo of European Quaternary geological research in a digital dataset.
