In 1989, fundamental political and social changes took place in the then Czechoslovakia that were associated with a number of consequences. One of them was the creation of entirely new general conditions for the development of the suburban landscape. Therefore, this paper deals with evaluation of the development of a selected suburban landscape since 1989. For the purposes of our study we have selected two suburban areas of the city of Olomouc (Černovír and Chválkovice). We analysed the transformations of the functional use of the landscape, particularly with regard to the assessment of changes in ecological stability. The changes in functional land use are assessed using the methods of digitising the available aerial photogrammetric images and their subsequent management in a geo-information system. These methods are used to quantify each category of functional use and then to evaluate the dynamics of their changes. In both cases the spatial aspects are also considered. In the next part of the paper, the facts that are found are discussed and interpreted using the identification of so-called driving forces.
