Potential uses of geographic information systems in research on the "society-natural environment" system are examined. New advances in Soviet geoinformation technology and needs for developing spatio-temporal modeling methods and computer "expert systems" are described. New techniques for representing the spatial characteristics of anthropogenic natural environment systems are characterized.
