Abstract: The paper presents the visualisation of volcanic relief and processes that formed the landscape of the Nízký Jeseník Upland (today recognised as a national geopark) during different phases of the Cenozoic. There are three basic types of volcanic phenomena: (i) volcanoes, (ii) lava flows and changes of relief induced by them and (iii) tuffaceous sediments. These are presented by block diagrams, panoramic maps and cross-sections on 18 panels placed along a 25 km long education trail leading through the volcanic landscape. We used a combination of GIS and graphic software to produce block diagrams based on various published and unpublished information sources. The education trail transfers scientific knowledge to the general public in an effort to contribute to the educational objectives of the Jeseníky Geopark.
