GIS and cartography
Survey and excavations
In applying an approach of dematerialization of planimetric, written and archaeological data, that should be soon processed through a GIS, it will be necessary to estimate the errors made in the compilation of the Napoleonic land registry made in order to be able to work on the construction of the urban space. The registry was started in 1811 and as a source document for morphological analysis and regressive mapping, it is geometrically quite precise. However, a review of this fiscal document (which has a twisted perspective, perhaps to tell us something about the townscape) and a comparison to correct maps have revealed a few errors depending on the level of treatment. It therefore becomes useful to characterize and to explain them, before linking them with oldest documents and archaeological data. The example of Les Coutures will allow us to put into practice these observations in order to define methods of metrological analysis and to study dynamics of urban space occupation according to various spatial and temporal scales.
