R. Spitsa – Institute of Geography of the Ukraine National Academy of Sciences, Kiev.


The problems have been reviewed and the main tasks of neotectonically active plate faults comprehensive research in Ukraine using GIS software and hardware have been identified. The structure of main information units on neotectonically active faults GIS database, as well as the content and sequence of operations used in the diagnosis, neotectonic rate definition and mapping neotectonically active plate fault zones and their dynamic influence have been founded.

Key words: 
neotectonically active fault, GIS, morphostructural-neontectonic GIS, database, neotectonic rating, certification
