Clean and Healthy – Natural Hazards and Resources
The methodology adopted to classify and represent natural hazards and resources influencing the quality of land and of life is briefly reported.It aims to make as schematic and simple as possible the classification procedure, based upon available thematic maps, adopting only three levels of hazard (each subdivided into two sub-levels, depending upon the possibility to reclaim or recover the area) and two levels of resources (each subdivided into two sub-levels according to its exploitability).The proposed representation aims at simplifying the interpretation of the resulting map, where both the hazard and resources levels are displayed using full colors and hatchings, respectively.
