Mapping remnant surfaces is essential in geomorphologic research because it allows us to deduce the surface-forming processes. Compared to the traditional methods, the suggested GIS-based method is an effective, faster, and more objective way of geomorphological mapping. However, the prerequisites of the applicability and reliability of the GIS method have not been fully examined yet. The study compared the results of traditional and GIS-based geomorphological mapping in a pilot area by analyzing the histograms of absolute and relative elevation and the slope conditions of remnant surfaces. It can be concluded that despite its errors, the GIS-based method yielded satisfactory results, showing the locations of these remnants similarly to the traditional map.
