Exposición sobre historia de la cartografía geológica

El Instituto Geológico y Minero de España ha inaugurado la exposición “Hispaniae Geologica Chartographia. La representación geológica de España a través de la Historia” en la sala de exposiciones Leonor de Plantagenet del Alcázar de Segovia. Se podrá visitar hasta el 31 de diciembre.  La exposición reúne una selección de mapas que reflejan la evolución de la cartografía geológica en España, que responde al avance del conocimiento científico y cultural del país, así como a las inquietudes y necesidades de la sociedad. Cada uno de los 40 mapas geológicos seleccionados supuso un hito fundamental en su momento, bien por las técnicas de representación empleadas, por la especialidad reflejada o por la manera de obtener la información. Junto a ellos se exponen también objetos que utilizaron los geólogos para la confección de los mismos. Se trata, por tanto, de la más completa exposición de cartografía geológica realizada en nuestro país hasta la fecha. En la siguiente dirección e
