Project description

The front zone of World War I left deep traces in the landscape, but also the landscape influenced the course of the war activities.The idea is that by reconstructing the evolution of the landscape a better understanding of this mutual influence will be obtained and can be used to set up a valuation map of potentially valuable locations or phenomena.
