The purpose of the work is to investigate the digital elevation models of the mass grave of 1944, built on the basis of aerial and cartographic data of different times. The implementation of the task involves the construction of digital elevation models (DEM) on the territory of the Jewish mass grave in the city of Vynnyky and Italian prisoners of war near the city. On the territory of the Jewish mass grave in the city of Vynnyky, a DEM was created based on a stereo pair of archival aerial images obtained in 1944 and on the basis of aerial photography from a UAV conducted in 2015.
The aim of the research was to determine the territory of the mass graves near Ralivka village (Lviv region) using archival data and to display them on modern maps. To define the place of mass executions and burials from the World War II period applying ground geophysical methods on the locations pre-defined from the archival aerial images obtained by the Germans in 1944. Methods.
Aim of this work is to create a digital terrain model of defensive structures “Citadel” using archival and modern cartographic data and aerial images. Objectives of the work is to develop technological scheme and describe the method of creation of digital terrain model and configuration of its 3D-visualization. Methods. Contour lines with 2m interval was created using fragment of modern topographic plan of Lviv, namely the area “Citadel” with scale 1: 5000, Altitude matrix was created on its base.
