INTERNATIONAL HYDROGEOLOGICAL MAP OF EUROPE: SHEET D6 “ATHINA”
Hydrogeological maps adopting international standards and covering the whole Greek territory are lacking today in Greece. Sheet D6 - Athina of the International Hydrogeological Map of Europe, scale 1:1,5 million can serve, among many other uses, for such a map. Although relatively limited amount of hydrogeological information is conveyed in the map, because of its small scale, it can serve very well as a guide for information, teaching purposes, planning and scientific work. Besides, because it has fully adopted the standards set from a number of relevant organisations (IAH, IAHS, COHYM, CGMW, UNESCO etc) for the compilation of such kind maps, it can serve equally well as a model for the generation of larger scale Hydrogeological maps.
