ABSTRACT

The article deals with the preparation of the Historical Atlas of the Czech Republic. The atlas will include maps displaying important historical events of the 20th century. The project is a follow-up to the successful Academic Atlas of Czech History, published in 2014, within which numerous classical and innovative maps covering selected events of the Czech history were created. The new Historical Atlas of the Czech Republic aims to extend and further develop selected 20-century topics from the Academic Atlas of Czech History and choose other significant topics from the Czech history. The results will be presented in a printed atlas and on a web application. The first phase of the project will be focused on research addressing the selection of significant historical events and wider topics which will be presented in the atlas. A survey of older historical atlases, both Czech and foreign ones, together with a literature search of the potential of website applications and technologies through which the atlas will be presented on the web will be conducted. It will be interesting to map prominent international issues as they are recorded in other historical atlases in neighbouring countries.
