Resumen


A new data model concerning geological information, mainly geological maps, has been developed to progress towards the better understanding and effective use of geoscientific maps. This model comprises different types of geologic units, sharing geometry, geological structures, survey points, mineral occurrences and sketches and reports. The model is completed with the incorporation of the geoscientific language that controls all the terms used in the model and the domain of the properties established.
The logical model has been implemented in a pilot zone of 10 adjacent sheets to a scale of 1:50,000 in an ESRI® Geodatabase environment which has been used only as a model demonstrator. The validation of the application schema has been carried out applying geo-scientifically based rules by means of certain data query and selection.
