"Previously Satellite Imagery" Modified April 2017 by Tanguy Racine

True Colour ortho-photographs

Ortho-rectified imagery is available for browsing on the following website: http://www.geopedia.si/#T105_x408448_y114888_s12_b4

There several datasets are available for browsing, which include: - a general map of land use (Topo), town boundaries, paths and points of interest at several different scales. The smallest scale is relatively unhelpful, but the medium scale is worth a look to check access to certain areas of the plateau.

LiDAR Digital Elevation model

Light detection and Ranging is an active remote sensing technique mostly used to obtain high resolution Digital Elevation models. The raster datasets (X coordinate, Y coordinate, Z elevation) are available for download on the following page. http://gis.arso.gov.si/evode/profile.aspx?id=atlas_voda_Lidar@Arso

The datasets are available in ESRI format, that is readily usable on Geographical Information Systems such as ArcMap and are georectified using the D96 Transverse Mercator system. Many operations such as Hillshade, Slope maps or curvature maps can be performed on such datasets, highlighting edges, cliffs, shakeholes or textures on GIS programs.

Geological information

Another webviewer exists for those interested in the regional to local scale geology of the mountain and its region. This time it is the Slovenian Geological Survey's website. http://biotit.geo-zs.si/ogk100/
