Paper Abstract

Multitemporal spaceborne and aerial image data as well as cartographic and historical materials about Franz Josef Land archipelago published since 1874 were acquired and jointly analyzed. Complex of photogrammetric and cartographic investigations was carried out being based on remote sensing data and supported by field direct measurements in test areas. Three-dimensional terrain models and large-scale basic maps were created by means of digital photogrammetry, stereoplotting and image interpretation. Achieved and expected accuracies were discussed. Moreover, present state and dynamics of glaciation of Franz Josef Land were evaluated and argued recommendations were given to select to preferable areas and periods of further terrestrial explorations. Results were integrated in thematic (topographic, glaciological) information system.
