Reflection of mining in mining and post-mining landscapes using cartographic sources

Jakub Jelen, Miroslav Čábelka

announced: 18. 12. 2020


This article compares mining and post-mining landscapes on old maps and in modern aviation photography of three regions around the towns of Jáchymov, Most and Kladno in Czechia. The three regions differ not only in the type of mining, but also in their historical development and current management. The goal of the article is to compare these regions and evaluate the changes and consequences of mining on the landscape in different time periods using cartographic sources. Another aim is to identify specific landscape elements related to mining by drawing on old maps and state map series of the three regions.
