Based on available data sources and a retrospective research, the AA. review the approaches and methods of the digital reconstruction and analyze their advantages and possible constraints. First, the reconstruction methods based on historical documents, maps and pictures, and on natural archives "geoarchives" are analysed. Then, model-based reconstruction and reconstruction based on multiple-source data and multidisciplinary analysis are compared. There are challenges that make these methods still in the exploratory stage. Researchers should focus on rebuilding historical land-cover dataset with high spatial resolution by developing new models so that the study results could be effectively applied in simulations of climatic and ecological effects
