Abstract: 
The problem of determination of ecological and hydrologic characteristics of territories on the basis of space information is considered. We offer to use the landscape-investigation approach in decoding and interpretation of space images. As a basis for the analysis we propose a formal classification of natural formations which is built on the principles of modal logic and the theory of fuzzy sets. The territory of Chernobyl - Lutezh region is studied within the framework of the described approach. The results obtained allow the conclusion about perspectives of the method proposed.
Keywords: landscape, space information, theory of fuzzy sets
