Abstract/Summary The process of mapping glacial geomorphological features is broken down into its component elements and each is described. Two types of glacial geomorphological maps are defined and the identification of glacial features discussed. The basic steps to producing a glacial geomorphological map are detailed, including production of a base map and field mapping. Short case studies of different mapping settings are included. Finally map production and publication are discussed.
