The surface of the Bahía Blanca estuary is 300 km2, whit a series of island, tidal flats, salt marshes and major parallel channel with minors ones connected to them. In 1520 the europeans explorers discover the estuary however, the field studies began 300 years later. The currents velocities associated to clay-silt sediments generate an intensive morphological dynamics of the flat and channels, where the presence of banks and island difficult the access to the estuary. These physical characteristics of the estuary plus the history studies of the region on generate late cartographic studies. At the present, the new environmental paradigmas asocoated to the different geotechnologies permit to understand the morphology of the many and its later details cartography.
