Geographically situated between the powerful nations of the Russians and Germans, Poland was balancing on a narrow ridge between enforcing its maximum demands as great power and being completely abolished. Therefore, it had dramatically changed territory and statehood, politics, boundaries and administrative structures. A view on the evolution especially of administrative structure, units and boundaries is a valuable approach to understand the very history of Poland in its geographic context.
Der Erfolg des Planetenbrowsers Google Earth hat einen neuen Riesen und Monopolisten in der Geoinformationsbranche geschaffen. Es wird derzeit nicht nur die Darstellung von Geodaten revolutioniert, sondern die Konsequenzen sind weitrei-chender: Im Web 2.0 Zeitalter werden Nutzer stärker an der Herstellung von Webdaten beteiligt. Der Schlüssel zu Google Earth ist die proprietäre Keyhole Auszeichnungs-sprache (KML). Trotz der vorhandenen Einschränkungen bietet KML 2.1 bereits sehr umfangreiche Möglichkeiten zur Visualisierung. Die Kombination mit der 3. Dimension stellt eine selten anzutreffende Möglichkeit dar, dem Nutzer Inhalte näher zu bringen. Selbst die 4. Dimension, die Zeit, kann visualisiert werden. Die Sprache entwickelt sich weiter und mit dem Beitritt Googles zum OGC (Open Geospatial Consortium) könnten die letzten Einschränkungen von KML beseitigt werden. Am Beispiel von Geodaten zur historischen Entwicklung der administrativen Strukturen Europas werden Möglichkeiten der Auszeichnungssprache aufgezeigt.
Changes in a country's political situation often result in changes in administrative and national borders. Thus, the administrative borders of Europe are constantly changing. A number of research projects have taken on the challenge of documenting this change. Under the name REGIS:GE, the historical administrative borders of Europe (1870 - 2000), which were collected in the international project "Regional European Geographic Information System" (REGIS), are presented in Google Earth.
