Evolution of landscapes and landuse of the Alps. Approche geohistorical through the use of old maps from the 19th century to the present (case studies in the Swiss and French mountains).

Abstract : Over the last two centuries the face of alpine landscapes evolved rapidly following the change in the mountain environment economic mode, the development of urbanization and the implementation of major development works, particularly to guard against floods. Our purpose is to measure these landscape dynamics and understand the human / environment interactions causing transformations. We use a methodology based on the diachronic mapping by integrating data from picture archives (maps, plans, cadastral ...) and textual archives (land records, administrative archives ...) in a GIS. Several examples will be discussed in the Swiss Alps (Rhone valley in Valais) and French (the Savoy).
