Some advantages of joint use of remote sensing (RS) technologies, geographical information systems (GIS) and simulation tools for investigation of complicated processes in the environment, natural hazard management etc. are presented. The whole cycle from RS data processing, geospatial and multicriterial analysis up to thematic spatial information publication are implemented for Carpathian region as an example. Space images and archive topographical maps are used for detection of changes in land use and for analysis of their possible impact on landslide processes development. A map of landslide emergencies of Carpathian region are prepared on the basis of landslides state and impact factors assessments as well as lines of further work are identified.
