Methodology of creating medium scale map of Lemkivshchyna has been characterised. Main attention has been paid on geocultural fundamentals of creation of the map. Specificity of applying human geographical conceptions of settlement systems and basin approach has been considered in this regard.
Purpose. The problem of application of thematic mapping in areas with man-made threats to which Dombrovski quarry in Kalush of Ivano-Frankivsk region relates is actual. Any way to eliminate these threats requires precise calculations of the work volume, prediction of changes that may take place on the terrain after introduction of a method for preventing disasters. Such calculations and predictions should be based on actual data about the territory which can be modeled by modern means of GIS technologies.
Purpose. Avalanching is a natural phenomenon that can cause loss of life, destructions of residential and industrial buildings, inflict losses on forestry, agriculture and tourism development in mountainous areas. Monitoring and research of potential avalanche dangerous territories is an urgent task. Geoinformation modeling plays leading role for its solving. The purpose of this paper is to create raster thematic maps of avalanching hazards on the base of analysis of certain morphometric and environmental factors of avalanching in the territory of the mountain ridge Polonyna Borzhava.
