ABSTRACT
Settlement extinction is a very common phenomenon in the borderlands of the North- West part of the Czech Republic. After the 2nd World War were almost all the German inhabitants moved from the borderlands to Germany. Almost all of the former settlement has disappeared as it was never again inhabited. A very significant example presented in this paper is the former village Jilmová (in German Ulmbach). The task of this project is to perform settlement development analysis on both sides of the border, land-use change analysis within the cadaster Jilmová and to identify the settlement residuals in the field. The settlement residual identification was performed by several methods – identification using the old maps, high precision LIDAR scanning, GNSS field survey, Kite Aerial Photography (KAP) and Unmanned Aerial Vehicle (UAV). All the processed data are available as a web-mapping application using the ArcGIS API for Flex offering the project results to the wide public use.

Keywords: settlement identification, borderland, old maps, UAV, DTM.
