The post-industrial landscape is the legacy of the period of industrialization. Industry has changed the landscape through active relief shapes, production, transport and residential facilities through changes in water regime, air quality and other impacts of industrial activities. This paper aims to demonstrate the methods of identification, classification and post-industrial landscape typology on a topical level. A specifically constructed land use map, a regular square grid and GIS technology were implemented for this purpose. The representation ratio of relevant buildings and areas in squares determines the degree of a given area’s postindustrial character. One-, two-, three- or four-word denomination are then used to classify the post-industrial landscape type. The most possibly varied areas are ideal for modelling scenarios of future development. – (BJ)
