The thesis is based on the archives of Franziscean Cadastre and records on actual use of the land of the Ministry of Agriculture, Forestry and Food of the Republic of Slovenia. We observed the changes in the use of land since the beginning of the 19th century until today, in the area of the villages Brdice pri Neblem, Šlovrenc and Kozarno, which are all located in the cadastral municipality of Biljana. The theoretical part presents some basic concepts related to methods of determining land use, and finally a detailed description of the used methods for obtaining data on land use. We have found that in the mentioned region the vineyard and built-up areas have been in increase, and this confirms our assumption about the spread of the these areas. The results of the analysis are presented in tabular and graphic, but the use of space is presented on thematic maps. The task was made by using software Quantum GIS 2.12.1.
