AFTER THE EXTRACTION Atlas of the Ostrava-Karviná coal basin problems and an alternative settlement options

The landscape of the Ostrava-Karviná coal basin, which has suffered antropogenic devastation caused by the extraction of the raw material, faces problems related to the instability of the terrain. Crucial for the research and the project are the data obtained. Using the key data, key questions and risks are formulated. The first aim of the thesis is to obtain data for the visualization of stabilized and unstable areas of the landscape after mining based on interviews with experts and map data. Furthermore, this information will be analysed and interpreted in order to define the area of interest and suggest what the future of the unstable area might be. Finally, the third objective is to propose a new, utopian layer to the existing landscape.
