Abstract

This article presents various indices for describing the characteristics of land use and monitoring land-use change in various periods. These indices were either developed by the authors or were derived from landscape metrics. They were calculated for five selected sites of agricultural land (sites) for the time when the Franciscean Cadaster was introduced and for 2015. A comparison of the values of the indices revealed the changes in the selected sites, and the conclusions present an opinion on their suitability. It was found that the numerical values of the indices reflect visually detected changes in the graphic representation of land use, and they could therefore be introduced into the system for monitoring land-use changes.

Keywords
