Lithological and geomechanical characters of outcropping rocks are relevant inputs for those applications involving geological issues. For instance, such information are used to implement spatial planning actions/rules influencing land use and transport infrastructures. The same data may also be used when mapping landslide susceptibility/hazard and preparing for landslide risk management. Many geomechanical classification systems for rock masses have been developed for engineering-geological applications (DEERE, 1963; BIENIAWSKI, 1973; BARTON et alii, 1974; HOEK, 1994). Nevertheless, these are site-specific systems or they are applied for specific engineering works (e.g. tunnels), so they are not fully adequate for continuous representations of engineering-geological properties over wide (map scale) areas. In this work, we describe the implementation of a GIS integrating lithological-geomechanical data collected in the field and laboratory with existing geological database to obtain an engineering-geological map at the scale of 1:10,000 for the provinces of Arezzo and Lucca (Tuscany, Italy). The study area is representative of different structural and lithologic settings within the Northern Apennines.
