The proposed project’s aim is to create method of advanced processing of oblique aerial photographs,which will become the model for exploitation of the Archive of aerial photography at the Institute of Archaeology of the Academy of Sciences of the Czech Republic and also an archive at Institute for Preservation of Archaeological Heritage of NW Bohemia. The aim is to build a modern digital archive of aerial photographs corresponding with the variables of the current storage, evidence and advanced processing standards of this kind of information source.This step will be followed by practical application of the created model on selected regions of the so-called old residential area of Bohemia, the result of which will be the plans of areas and maps of larger spatial units with archaeological features identified by the so-called marks and documented during aerial survey.The archives of aerial images will obtain the form of structured data whose information potential will benefit both, present and future generations: archaeologists, historic geographers, architects or natural scientists.
