The glacial geomorphology of the Tian Shan has been mapped, with the study area covering almost 638,000km(2). The map, designed to be printed at A0 size due to the elongated shape of the mountain range, is presented at a scale of 1:1,100,000. Five glacial landform categories are presented; glacial valleys, marginal moraines, glacial lineations, hummocky terrain and meltwater channels. These landform categories were mapped using the Shuttle Radar Topography Mission (SRTM) digital elevation model (90m resolution), Landsat 7 ETM+ satellite imagery (30m resolution), and images contained in Google Earth. The mapped landforms were created by glaciers that were restricted to mountain areas and their immediate surroundings.
