Abstract: A high-resolution Digital Terrain Model (DTM) of Campi Flegrei caldera, obtained from an airborne LiDAR mission, has been analyzed in order to produce a 1:20,000-scale morphometric map of this volcanic area. The map consists of different thematic layers, which include: profile curvature, terrain ruggedness index, elevation range, as well as an upto- date structural map and building distribution in the densely populated area. Results evidence that most of the relief is related to the occurrence of tuff-cones, tuff-ring, and the outer flanks of the caldera. Higher values of elevation characterize the upper portions of cones, while higher terrain ruggedness index values concentrate on the inner flanks of cones and in areas affected by gravity and erosional processes. The map also evidences the topographic expression of crater rims and of the major morphological scarps, which reflect ancient and uplifted shorelines and present-day cliffs.
