What is a geological map like?

All the geological maps consist of the same elements. Each institution entrusted of the realization of the geological maps establishes a sheet model. Here is the Geological map of Catalonia scale 1:25.000.

Each sheet is formed by a serie of basic elements: the geological map, the geological cross section, the legend, the geological outline, the stratigraphical outline, the stratigraphical columns, the conventional signs and the authors. According to the geological characteristics of the zone, other elements can be added.
