This dataset includes geomorphological features that were mapped within the Lagunas de las Huaringas, northern Peru using a combination of digital elevation models (DEMs) and remotely sensed optical imagery using well establish geomorphological mapping technique's. Also within is the subsequent glacier reconstructions that were informed by the geomorphological mapping, along with their reconstructed equilibrium line altitudes (ELAs) and glacial surface contours. For added context to the surrounding mapped features and reconstructed glaciers, basemap data is also included with 200 m elevational contours, height points and streams/rivers.
