CAVE MAPPING FROM THE REGION OF INTERVALES STATE PARK (PEI) AND SURROUNDINGS (SÃO PAULO, BRAZIL)
The ultimate goal to be achieved is the search for maps and data speleological throughout PEI and its surrounding area, in addition to mapping of selected caves to create a database. This work specifically gathered data on all previously selected caves in and around PEI, mainly composed by the maps of these caves found in all cave databases and caving groups. A table was created with data of all caves found and comprised mapping information, besides the database code, location, and extension of the year map.
From this search, the process of digitizing began with the maps selected of the caves as Sumidouro, Carioca 1 and 2, Fenda do Córrego and Toca do Felicio. The digitalization kept the most important data in the mapping of a cave, as its walls, river, speleothems, blocks, geological structures, etc, and the cross sections. There was also digitalization using AutoCAD software where the maps already completed are Toca Fogo, Carioca 1, Fenda do Córrego and Toca do Felicio. This digitalization was simple and included only the cave wall.
For the new mapping one cave was selected, the Pianos Cave, where the topography and structural survey has been performed and the collected information will be analyzed and presented later.
