Historical landscape

Okolí Olomouce na mapě I. vojenského mapování

In recent years, research into the forms and functioning of historical landscapes has been largely accenuated in the scientific fields dealing with landscape and its individual elements. It facilitates inspiration for solutions of the current issues in the landscape (drought, agricultural soil erosion, biodevirsity loss etc.), and at the same time, using the knowlede on long-term development, to model scenarios of future development of the landscape and of its use. It is also important to identify segments of landscape requiring special attention with respect to their importance as items of cultural heritage.

At the department of geography we focus on a long-term basis to the research into elements of historical landscape related to water management, historical path and road networks, or specific forms of land use. We intend to advance the methods of research of historical landscape – focusing namely on historical and old maps or cadastres and the possibilities of their processing using geoinformation systems (so called historical GIS) and also by means of field research, which we complement with methods of remote sensing and geophysical research (georadar, electromagnetic measurements, drones).
