Thousands of kilometers have been covered (walked??) along the valleys of the Province of Turin and Cuneo. 15 maps in 1:25000 scale have been carried out to date, and they cover the following valleys: Susa, Chisone, Cenischia, Val Sangone Pellice, Val Germanasca, Pinerolo, Lanzo Valleys, Val Pellice and down south to the Colle di Tenda . Two more maps are a work in progress now: the hill of Turin and the Park of the Marguareis. Since 2005, the result of our field surveys is imported on a base map already set with the official data provided by the Cartographic Service of the Piedmont Region and by IGN, the French National Geographic Institute.
