The aim of this study was to recreate the spatial development of the Czarna Przemsza River
valley, shaped as a result of high intensity human impact. Reconstruction of the study area landscape
was based on cartographic sources referring to particular study periods, i.e. the 18th, 19th,
20th and 21st centuries. The fi nal effect of the interpretation of the maps was to draw up the land
cover profi les, which enabled a comparative analysis of landscape changes within the valley. The
study revealed differences between the two sides of study area and showed that the diversifi cation
identifi ed is also evident today.
