Conference Paper
Full-text available
The researchers of the Geological Institute of Hungary (now: Geological and Geophysical Institute of Hungary) have been studying the secrets of the geology of Hungary for nearly 150 years. During their surveys, many interesting fossils, minerals and stones have been found, most of which are housed at the Institute. Thus, the museum of the Institute...

This paper summarizes the early geological maps about Hungary with special respect to their color codes, surface symbol systems and map projections. The process from the ad hoc color usage of the earliest maps, through the influence of the color system proposed by the Bologna Geological Congress of 1881 to the symbol system of the modern maps is sh...

The usage of georeferenced maps in GIS applications provides the possibility to apply geological maps in real-time GPS-navigation. In these tasks, both historical and modern geological maps can be applied. A georeferenced raster file of a geological map can be rendered as a background image in GPS software on a Personal Digital Assistant (PDA). The...

Three interesting geological map items, showing at least a part of Transylvania, are introduced in this work: the Herbich map (1878) of the historical Siculia, the 1896 and 1922 maps of the historical Hungary. The map of Herbich is the first member of the famous map series of the freshly founded Royal Geological Institute of Hungary. The 1896 map i...

The area of Banat, a historical region shared by Romania and Serbia, has been hit by a centennial flood event in spring 2005. The Temes (Tamiš/Timiş) River flooded several hundred km2, with many settlements. The extent of the flood was partly unexpected, especially in positional sense. In order to achieve a better understanding of the phenomenon, w...

A Magyar Királyi Állami Földtani Intézet és jogutódjai 150 éves történetük alatt Magyarország geológiai térképezésének legfontosabb bázisintézményei voltak. Az intézet történetének első rendszeres, közepes méretarányú földtani térképműve Magyarország (nem teljes) 1:144,000 méretarányú geológiai térképsorozata volt. A térképmű a Habsburg Birodalom m...

The Mining and Geological Survey of Hungary, founded in 1869 as Royal Geological Institute of Hungary, celebrating the 150th anniversary this year, has not only a big geological collection but also a big collection of old maps. Collecting them has been started since its foundation, and it is growing steadily. This map collection includes not only g...

The geodetic point lists of the Habsburg survey of the Italian peninsula, carried out in several steps after the Napoleonic wars, were digitized and analyzed together with the modern coordinates of the identified points. Assuming the usage of the Zach-Oriani hybrid ellipsoid, the Burša-Wolf type datum transformation parameters were estimated betwee...

A short analysis about the representation of basaltic area in geological maps (1) from the mid-19th century and (2) nowadays, both in extents and mapping accuracy.

The metadata of the Norwegian historical topographic maps are given, in order to make its georeference possible, using just their corners points as control points. The earliest systematic topographic map product is the square mile-maps (kvadratmil kart). They cover the southern leg of the Swedish border region of Norway as it was in the end of 18 t...

Full-text available
The 1:50,000 and 1:100,000 scale historical sheets of the Norwegian topographic 'Rektangelkart' map series were georeferenced, in order to obtain the original hydrography of the Gaula River, at a ca 50 kilometer long section between Støren and the estuary to the Gulosen Bay. The 1:50,000 scale sheets are the earliest systematic topographic works of...

Topographic basis and projection of early geological maps about Hungary Summary: Interestingly enough, the first two maps showing geological informations about the historical Hungary (which covered the full Pannonian Basin within the Carpatian arc) were compiled by foreign travelers: an Englishman named Robert Townson (1797) and the Frenchman Sulpi...
Conference Paper
Full-text available
Similarly to other themapic map types, geological maps are almost always compiled in a pre-designed topographic base. This method was also applied in case of the historical version of geological maps; the field observations and interpretations were signed in a base topographic map. This contribution provides a short overview of the topographic base...

The quality and resolution of digital elevations models (DEMs) are rapidly improving and the analyses they provide are sutiable tools for reconstructions. This study considers a reconstruction of the former inundation levels which characterize the maximum extent of lakes using DEMs and it focuses on Lake Balaton. However, the static filling algorit...
Chapter
The first geological map about Hungary was published by Robert Townson in 1797. He mapped the geological features along his route only. The map of the French Sulplice Beudant was issued in 1818. This is the first geological map that covers the whole territory of Hungary, using number codes to indicate the different features. The usage of the colors...
Article
The development of the stratigraphy brought the renewal of the display method of the geological maps. The First Geological Congress in Paris (1878) put the unification of the stratigraphic classification and nomenclature to the agenda. Finally, the unified color and symbol system of the geological maps was accepted at the Second Geological Congress...
Conference Paper
Full-text available
Two maps of Hungary, from almost the same year in the early 19th century, are compared, with respect to the map content, projection and geodetic accuracy. The map of Goetz, Johann M. Probst and Johann K. robst (1804; henceforth referred to as GPP map) is printed in one sheet, its scale is approx. 1:1.5 million. There is no information about its geo...

The catchment area of the Békény/Belcheni Creek, the trunk steam of the Gyergyó/Gheorgheni Basin (Harghita county), is analysed using historical and modern maps and satellite images, to obtain the changes in the forest cover ratio from 1780 to present days. Forest area in the georeferenced maps are registered by manual digitizing. The forests were...

The Békény Creek, the trunk stream of the eastern part of the Gergyó/Georgheni Basin, drains 120 sq kms in the Eastern Carpathians and the basin itself. It belongs to the Tisza water system at the Eastern part of the Pannonian Basin. Three quarters of the catchment area is in the high mountains. To west, the watershed is a thin stripe on the flatla...
Article
The colour theory rules presented by the author and the analysis of the legend of geological maps published of Hungary serve as the theoretical background for setting up an uniform legend in the Geological Institute of Hungary with the participation of the author.
Article
The paper presents the methods of displaying georeferenced geological data and processes making up the features of thematic maps as well as the establishment and evolution of these methods. It starts with an overview of geological maps published in Hungary from the very first one until the most recent maps. Development of the science of geology esp...
Article
The main method of map compilation has been changed from manual drawing to the application of computer technologies since the 1990s. Therefore, in the present technologies the preparation methods of the maps for publication were changed as well. These methods are of two kinds: the creation of the graphics-based and the database-linked maps. In this...
