The human societies act as a novel force of geomorphic change. Be reshaping the landscape, we leaving the footprints that could be mapped and read. With use of LiDAR scanning we can create very detailed digital terrain model and map the historical anthropogenic relief forms as abandoned terraces, historical roads, military objects, dried river meanders, abandoned buildings and others. The aim of the dissertation thesis will be to use the LiDAR based images to map the historical anthropogenic landforms in selected case study area and with the use of historical aerial photos, maps and other sources estimate their age and origin.
