Significant geological localities - spatial data set
Spatial data set of the database of important geological localities, which represents a registry of these localities in the Czech republic. It takes in geological, geomorphological, mineralogical or palaeontological localities, not only already protected, but also those proposed for protection, or localities, which are kept on file for their interest or uniqueness.
The works on the database of important geological localities started in the Czech geological institute in 1992 in sequence to creation of the registry of protected geological localities (together with the Nature Conservation Agency of the Czech Republic).
During years 1997-1999 was the geological localities file transformed in digital form (MS Access database). One year later it was transformed in the central data storage of the Czech Geological Survey (ORACLE database). Locations of the geological localities have been subtracted from maps at a scale of 1:50 000 and smaller. At present, updates of database and precising of coordinates (scale 1:25 000) are going on.
