L’apport du cadastre napoléonien aux problématiques spatiales des retenues d’eau

Abstract : Concerned by French and European legal measures, hydrologic spaces are today at the forefront of scientific attention, and numerous researches are conducted here and there. As humid zones, reservoirs constitute a part of these geographical objects worth understanding, all the more so as they are generally situated upstream in a basin, and have an impact on the quality and volume of water downstream. The use of historical scientific documents allows to give a temporal, and not only spatial or functional dimension to the study of these reservoirs. To this effect, the study of the Napoleonic cadastre, realized between 1807 and 1850, offers the opportunity to compare territories spatially, to understand local or regional dynamics, but also to take into account man-made developments. Applied to the three departments of Creuse, Indre and Haute-Vienne, the cadastre analysis, and the comparison with present-day inventories allow to refine the methods available to analyse this tool, and to open up research to other scientific fields than geography.
