the millionth map of the Quaternary of France, version 2020 is available

The Quaternary millionth map of metropolitan France proposed here presents the geological polygons of Quaternary-age formations of metropolitan France as well as certain remarkable sites (prehistoric, of climatic interest, paleontological, palynological) that have been the subject of a comprehensive study over the past 20 years.

The polygons are RGF (Geological Referential of France) labeled and the RGF chronostratigraphic charter (compatible with the INSPIRE standard) was used for the chronological attributions. The map has been updated according to recent modifications of the international stratigraphic chart.

This map will in the end be integrated into the next map of the European Quaternary at 1 / 2,500,000 (IQuaME)
