ABSTRACT
When analyzing inventory or evaluation cards for geomorphosites, one can notice that sometimes the elaboration of such cards is not supported by an articulated method of inventory and assessment, whereas some cards developed together with such methods do not in fact take up the criteria used in the assessment. In addition, not all methods used contain such cards. Thus, we identified the need for a new method of assessment that materializes in the development of a synthetic sheet that captures the criteria and rates noted in the evaluative process. The originality of the method emerges from de separation of the structural and functional values of geomorphosites, for which new or improved criteria and ranking are used. The restrictive attributes are also evaluated, in order to obtain a complete view upon the possibilities of conservation and exploitation of the geomorphosite. All scores obtained by a geomorphosite will be reflected in the inventory card. This card will also include general information about the landform, a brief description of the type of geomorphosite and justification for rates given in the evaluative process.
