Abstract

In learning about historical landscapes and the historical dimensions of today’s landscapes, historical maps are a rich source of information. In academic research maps have for long been used by geographers, but they are also becoming more commonly used within non-geographical disciplines such as archaeology, ecology etc. In different types of conservation work, concerning both cultural heritage and nature conservation, their use is today seen as almost compulsory. Historical maps are also often used by nonacademics who take an interest in for instance local history and genealogical studies. the attention paid to the information derived from historical maps is often complementing other sources, particularly regarding landscape issues.
