In this diploma thesis we have analysed the changes in the space for the study area, which is the cadastral community of Ždinja vas, where a comparison between spatial patterns in the time of establishment of the Franziscean land cadastre (1826) and today has been conducted. For this purpose, we used the archived documents of Franziscean land cadastre and the latest data from the official registers (data from the land cadastre, the land use evidence and the building cadastre). The thesis includes the brief presentation of the Franziscean land cadastre, followed by the presentation of the results of analyses. For analytical area we conducted a comparative analysis of changes in plot structure and a comparative analysis of land-use change based on the Franziscean land cadastral data and current official land evidences. Based on the results of the analytical part of our thesis we were able to confirm the assumption that the study area over the past two centuries led to major changes. These are reflected in the today’s increased number of land plots compared to the number from the time of occurrence of Franziscean land cadastre. Furthermore, land use changes in this area are obvious in the analysed period, particularly as the expansion of built-up area and the abandonment of agricultural land. Significant change in the rural space has also been caused by construction of the highway.
