Military Applied Geomorphological Mapping: Normandy Case Study
572C Holloway Road
Geomorphological Layers (requires Google Earth or an equivalent viewer on your computer):
This analysis uses SRTM 3" (~ 90 m) and Landsat ETM+ (30 m) data. The positions of the World War II front lines are from 1:500,000 scale maps. Zooming in too far in Google Earth can reveal the limitations of this scale of GIS data, and users should consider that.
