conference paper description
The contribution introduces issues of the use of the geographic information system (GIS) in population protection; it specifically deals with sheltering and emergency quarters in the territory of regions. The paper describes possibilities for the use of GIS within the field of population sheltering in order to avoid consequences and impacts of an outbreak of chemical, biological, radiological and nuclear weapons, industrial accidents or other extensive extraordinary events (EE). The main objective of this paper is mapping of the sheltering infrastructure processes.
