  • The 1:100 000 scale Ñoquebe (3166-20) sheet covers the southwestern part of the Sierra de Chepes and the adjacent plain; this area is located in the southern part of the La Rioja Province (Figures 1, 2). The map area is bounded by latitudes 31°00’ S and 31°20’ S, and by longitudes 67°00’ W and 66°30’ W. The area falls in the central north part of the 1:250 000 scale Chepes (3166-III) sheet. The area is easily accessible from Córdoba and La Rioja by Ruta Nacional 38 and Ruta Provincial 32, and from San Juan by Ruta Nacional 141 and Ruta Provincial 32. The nearest regularly serviced airport is located at La Rioja. The nearest major centre of population, logistics and commerce is Chepes on Ruta Nacional 141 located between the Sierra de Chepes and Sierra de Las Minas (outside the map area). Ñoquebe, San Antonio, Chepes Vieja, Villa Casana, Puerto La Aguada and La Calera are small population centres in the map area.
