Lanscape history

The landscape history maps are digitally drawn maps depicting the structure of landscape history, primarily based on large-scale maps from the late 1700s to the early 1800s. They serve to illustrate and pinpoint the locations of various elements such as old village plots, fields, meadows, mills, and the routes of roads. These maps also allow the examination of the relationship between buildings and their historical surroundings. Produced within the regional responsibility museum of Southwest Finland in the context of various development projects, the digital images of the original maps have been overlaid onto base maps. The map symbols and features have been vectorized using GIS software. Accompanying documents related to the maps have been examined, and their data content has been recorded in a table alongside the map symbols. This process enables the individualization of information, particularly concerning nomenclature.
