ABSTRACT
Chateaux and castles are an important part of cultural heritage in the Czech Republic. The main focus of our project is to put together all the historical maps and plans of chateaux and castles as well as their historical photographs within the web mapping application. The emphasis is put on the surroundings of the main objects. There are many interesting buildings, parks, sculptures and churches nearby. All these objects can be found on historical mappings or other plan materials. The processing of old maps is performed during the first phase of the project funded by the Czech ministry of culture. Old maps are collected and georeferenced. After that is the vector data model being created and fulfilled. All these maps and created data are prepared to be used in geographical information systems. Besides map material, 3D models of castles and chateaux can be created. All outputs of the project (georeferenced maps, vector data models, 3D models of castles, buildings reconstruction) are easily accessible by the web mapping application.

Keywords: old maps, georeferencing, cultural heritage, web mapping
