Approximately 3.500 - 3.700 billion years ago, Mars held a hydrological cycle, characterized by the
presence of glaciers and liquid water in the form of rivers and lakes partially or completely frozen,
forming a similar landscape that can currently be found in various regions of our planet, as evidenced by
analyzing images from Mars and Earth orbiters.
The main objective of the project is to characterize the glaciers, periglacial and fluvial environments
of the Martian Gale crater, from a morphological study of crater, studying its morphology with the aim of
understanding the climate on early Mars. To this end, we are used the study of analogues,...

This work uses remote sending imagery (Landsat 8) to delimit the area burned in a wildfire, to map
the intensity of the fire based on the damage caused to the vegetation, and to evaluate the early
regeneration of the vegetation discussed according to the pre-fire vegetation categories. We selected the
large wildfire occurred in Sierra of Gata (Central-Western Spain) in the summer of 1015 because the
relevance for the region of Extremadura (the largest wildfire in the region for the last decade) and the
huge social and environmental impact for the territory.
Using Landsat 8 images, six methods were followed and results compared with the official...

The construction of the new logistics platforms in Badajoz and Caia will cause an impact on the
accessibility and the potential supply of goods in the Iberian Peninsula. In order to assess these
territorial effects, it is analyzed the territorial accessibility from the logistics platforms to the Peninsular
population centers and the interconnection between all sea ports and logistics platforms. In this respect,
the scenario before the construction of the new logistics platforms and the future scenario taking into
account their future construction is compared. It is analyzed the access minimum times from each
logistics platform to different population centers, the potential population to which they...

From the economic perspective, during the years 1998-2012 has been intense economic changes that
have affected society. In these years came the “housing bubble”and the dramatic growth of the
construction industry. The price of housing in 2006 decreased and the resulting crisis in the construction
sector was exacerbated by the financial crisis since the second half of 2007. This study investigates the
socioeconomic development of the Spanish municipalities using statistical and cartographic techniques.
The aim is to provide a methodological framework for the analysis of socioeconomic changes by means of
data from different sources of information. Also Spanish municipalities were characterized, their
evolution was analyzed and it...

The analysis of traffic accidents is not only of interest from the technical point of view of engineering,
but also this interest extends to whole society. Although it is true that there are several technical studies
in the main administrations, they are usually performed only from a statistical point of view. This paper
aims to study possible applications of geographical information systems (GIS) analysis to road safety. To
do this, we will focus on the roads of Extremadura network with more accidents, and accidents with
victims produced between 2010 and 2015 will be georeferenced. In addition, accidents have been related
to other variables in order to...

Classification and territorial characterization is fundamental to understand how the space is
structured. Honduras is divided politically and administratively into 18 departments and 298
municipalities, among which there are obvious territorial imbalances from the ethnical point of view of
the country. Therefore, taking the Honduran municipalities such as study area and on the basis of a
geographical and statistical analysis, the main objective is to observe the behavior of a serial of
demographic and socioeconomic variables in relation to the percentage of indigenous and afro
descendant population who lives in each of the municipalities, being the final objective to provide a
support tool for those responsible of...

In this Master Degree Dissertation the combination of aerial and terrestrial images to produce a
spatial high resolution Digital Elevation Model (DEM) is suggested. The purpose is to ensure the
suitability of terrestrial images to complement and improve the DEM produced by means of aerial
images. We have performed an aerial survey with an Unmanned Aerial Vehicle (UAV) and processed the
images with the Structure from Motion (SFM) photo-reconstruction software, to obtain a point cloud. The
same technique has been applied to the terrestrial image dataset. We obtained a point cloud model from
each photo set, and also merged them to produce a combined model. The...

In this essay we will analyze the teaching of Geography in the Compulsory Secondary Education
stage, especially during its first academic year, we will notice possible needs and new methodological
proposals for this field will be stated, nowadays, more than ever, the usage of geographical information
systems is completely necessary; a proposal focused on Geography teaching will be made, it will be
based on the usage of geographical information systems as a didactic resource.
Our study goal is analyzed from a double dimension; on the one hand we will see how Geography is
dealt with in the classroom, focusing on general needs, leaving aside descriptive an...
