Abstract [en]

The main objectives of this study are to analyse landscape changes and compile, based on historical cartographic materials, five land cover maps of Naissaar Island (the Gulf of Finland) covering the end of the 17th and the beginning of the 21 century. The strategic value of the island within the Gulf of Finland has long time been recognized. The results of cartographic analysis show that edaphic conditions as well as geographical position have had a significant role determining changes in the landscape pattern on Naissaar Island. As opposed to other small islands in Estonia where land cultivation is characteristic, natural processes are clearly dominating on Naissaar.
