Authors(s) and Affiliation(s)



An urban-geomorphologic analysis of the Slovak relief described. The aim of this analysis is the evaluation of a certain territory for the needs of urbanism. At the first stage when data for the basic questions of settlements location are needed urban geomorphology can offer data in general scales, for the needs of Slovakia this being 1: 500 000. At the second stage the evaluation of surface form, present landforming process and a combination of these characteristics with data possible to quantify come to the fore. Both mentioned approaches of urban geomorphologic evaluation have been carried out on the territory of Slovakia.
