This thesis introduces the possibility of using archive material from the Franciscan cadastre to describe spatial entities in that time and to reconstruct the measurement process in a certain area. The theoretical part of the thesis presents the history of land cadastre with an emphasis on the description of the history of land cadastre in Slovenia, concluded with a detailed description of the Franciscan cadastre. We focused on the applicability of indication sketches to determine the measurement areas (fallows) and to reconstruct the measurement process in a study area. Analytically we focused on the area of cadastral community of Črešnjice for which we have carried out analyses of visibility among points and of visibility of the area from certain points. To analyse the visibility we used archive data on trigonometric and graphic points in the study area and the digital terrain model (DTM), which we acquired from the Ministry of the Environment and Spatial Planning. The analyses confirmed that it is possible to determine measurement areas and to reconstruct the measurement process from the Franciscan cadastre with the help of indication sketches. The results are presented
graphically as well as numerically.
