ABSTRACT
In conditions of dangerous interaction of natural processes and human impact, there is a possibility of environmental disaster leading to significant economic losses. The article describes a research devoted to pilot testing of standardized analytic approaches to hazardous natural-climatic phenomena in different spheres of environmental management. On the example of the taiga zone of Western Siberia, an algorithm has been developed, implementing the basic functions of GIS technology for the purposes of current study. Using the ArcGIS 10.1 platform, a comprehensive information database was created, combining digital and cartographic data on natural hazards conditions and dynamics. In the result, a GIS system "Hazardous natural climatic processes in the taiga zone of Western Siberia" was created, and, using the author’s proprietary methods, zoning of the territory based on the environment management hazard degree, was performed.
