ABSTRACT
Morphological analysis is a widely used method, applied in many scientific disciplines: ecology, biology, hydrology, geodesy and cartography, geology, medicine, and in urban geography. The term “morphology” has different meanings in different disciplines. In geodesy and cartography it means, generally speaking, studying the geometric properties of objects in space. In this research a digital cadastral map was submitted for analysis. This paper presents the morphological analysis of the structure created by the borders of cadastral parcels located in Strzelce Wielkie. In particular, the relationship between the perimeter and the area of the parcels bordering the Młynówka River flowing through the village was determined. The analysis indicates that a typical parcel situated on the Młynówka River has a significantly elongated shape similar to the shape of parcels located in urban areas. The calculated coefficient of parcel shape demonstrates that parcels bordering the river are seen as attractive and that the river bank is used in the most optimal way.
