ABSTRACT
The flood damage recovery usually requires a considerable amount of money. The main objective of this paper is to provide an overview on the possibilities of using GIS systems even during the phase of the evaluation of floods as a thread. The high quality input data allowing the use of comprehensive analytic capabilities of GIS systems is thought to be the main prerequisite for an effective use of these systems in the field of practice. The results of the analysis are a valuable source of information even for logistical planning in order to handle the flood crisis and to minimize caused damage.

Keywords: flood, modeling, risk, map of the flood hazard and flood risk map, geographic information systems
