Abstract Historical data are relevant to scenario research. Scenario studies mostly deal with functional changes in land use. These changes almost inevitably mean that part of the cultural heritage of the landscapes will disappear. Applied historical geographyand historical ecology must guide this cultural erosion process. Unacceptable damages must be avoided. The relevance of five fields of research is discussed: survey, assessment and vulnerability analysis; historically sound landscape designs; reference images; historical processes in time; and planning concepts.
