This paper focuses on the application of GPS handheld devices (Garmin 76CSX) as a tool for mapping in order to create geomorphological maps. GPS is the ideal device for mapping at scales smaller than 1:10 000 because of the ease of handling, reasonable cost, speed and accuracy of measurements that can compete with other surveying instruments. Mapping in the area of Medvednica (Ponikve) we collected data of several morphological profiles and point objects that were later compared with data from the HOK map in the Arc Gis 9.3 software.
