Delimitation and attributes that characterize each element of the Inventory of Spaces of Geological Interest of Catalonia. Spaces of geological interest are places of interest, due to their unique and/or representative character, for the study and interpretation of the origin and evolution of large geological domains, including the processes that have shaped them, the climates of the past and their paleobiological evolution in a sufficiently continuous and homogeneous manner throughout its extension, one or more notable and significant characteristics of the geological heritage of a natural region, with geometric or geographical continuity of the characteristic and with the homogeneity of this in all its extension. This set of information was born in 1999 from a collaboration agreement between, at that time, the Department of the Environment of the Generalitat of Catalonia and the Autonomous University of Barcelona.
