Abstract: This paper introduces digital techniques to evaluate historical maps and aerial photographs in order to detect contaminations on derelict industrial sites. Special attention is paid to the scanning of historical documents and the processing of those cartographic information with geographic information systems (GIS) or CAD software. The procedure is illustrated with two abandoned mining sites in the Ruhr-District in northwest Germany.
