A geological heritage protection map is prepared according to the protection level of the geological heritage. According to the importance and distribution of the geological heritage sites, the protection zones can be divided into top, first, second and third grade protection zones (points and lines), which are marked with names and indicated with different colours on the base map with the corresponding scale. Important inflection points along the border of top class and primary protection areas must be measured and numbered on the map with a list of the coordinate data of the measuring points.
