A tall list of problems needs to be solved during a long-time work on a virtual model of Prague aim of which is to show historical development of the city in virtual reality. This paper presents an integrated solution to digitalizing, cataloguing and processing of a large number of maps from different periods and from variety of sources. A specialized (GIS) software application was developed to allow for a fast georeferencing (using an evolutionary algorithm), for cataloguing in an internal

So the maps could be processed further to serve as a main input for a proper modeling of a changing face of the city through times. Focus and Scope: interdisciplinary integration, software engineering and databases, computational intelligence
