One of my fellow students wrote the following about the articles:
My fellow student goes on to say:
One of Winiwarter´s articles is about the reconstruction of the Danube river landscape in Vienna. They used a system called GIS to be able to do this and looked at early historical maps of the river back from the 16th century and onwards. I found this tracing back of past, long-forgotten landscapes, quite intruiging. I wonder what was their motivation to do this. It seems to me that in a world where much industrialization is going on, new modern buildings and factories are constantly developing and wanted. Of course though, on the other hand, green areas are also much appreciated to be cultivated in the midst of it all. What I have never heard of however, is how an old river is reconstructed.
