Abstract

Old maps are an important historical source for exploring historical landscapes. They are often used as cartographic bases for studying structural changes and reconstruction of land use. This study is concerned with comparison of positional accuracy of a set of 'old maps' as compared to present-day maps. Determination of positional deviations defines the degree of precision of the old map and its potential for its use in GIS applications. The total of ten unique historical maps in different scales of Central Bohemia were examined regarding its positional accuracy. - (IKR)
