Abstract

The purpose of this research is the identification, recording, mapping and photographic imaging of the special volcanic geoforms as well as the cultural monuments of the volcanic Methana Peninsula. With the use of novel methods the aim is to reveal and study the impressive topographic features of the Methana geotope and discover its unique geodiversity. The proposed hiking trails along with the Methana’s archaeology and history, will be highlighted through the creation of an ‘intelligent’ interactive map (Story Map). Two field trips have been conducted for the collection of further information and the digital mapping of the younger volcanic flows of Kammeni Chora with drones. Through the compiled data, thematic maps were created depicting the lava flows and the most important points of the individual hiking paths. The thematic maps were created using a Geographic Information System (GIS). Finally, those maps were the basis for the creation of the main Story Map. The decision to use Story Maps was based on the numerous advantages on offer such as user-friendly mapping, ease of use and interaction and user customized displays.
