One of the drivers of the resurgence in geomorphological mapping is technology: the availability of new data sources has allowed new insights and rapid mapping to be performed, organised within the framework of a geographic information system (GIS). The addition of new sources of digital spatial data has opened up vast regions of the Earth’s surface (and indeed other planets) for study that would have otherwise been uneconomic or impossible to achieve. Oguchi et al. (2011) detail the vast range of data sets that are currently available and outline their potential application areas.
