Preliminary methodological recommendations to for producing geosynoptic map for the integrated land information system at the level of Communities.
S u m m a r y. Nowadays, GIS (Geographic Information Systems) becomes a very popular tool supporting administration, decision making and spatial planning and therefore a stong demand for proffesional, detailed spatial information arises. Communities as the base administrative units, have turned into the primary centres for GIS data acquisition, but also become the last for using of digital spatial information. Communities are only becoming an important recipient of geoinformation, especially in the field of natural resources and deposits at local level, as well as environmental, architectural historical objects, which require protection. For six years now, the Department of Fundamental Geology at the University of Silesia has launched three projects related to application of multidisciplinary digital geo-information at the community level. The main purpose of the projects was the development of technology for various geological, geographical and other data archiving, processing and presentation. The projects areas have been chosen to cover diferent requirements related to individual communities. Experience of the projects undertaken by the Departmentmay significantly reduce the costs of building a database and also facilitate the planning of future research activity. For example, the Tarnowskie Góry project shows how critical could be the historical information about abandoned underground mines for the safety of recent urbanization. The proposed methodological approach emphasizes the minimizing of fundamental basic field investigation. With such an approach the community officers may do a large part of work on constructing local database with only incidental assistance of experts.
