Why are geo-engineering maps made?

Since the natural environment is a complex and internally related system, any changing elements must be thoroughly analysed.

While investments in urban areas are prepared and planned, it is necessary to have a considerable amount of varied information about natural geo-engineering conditions, infrastructure, ways of land use, ownership relations etc. Equally important is the possibility of processing the obtained data in various ways.

Appropriately prepared spatial pieces of information allow the assessment of geo-engineering conditions of the urban areas in spatial planning, for instance when selecting the location of housing estates or mapping out a number of possible routes of linear construction features and underground infrastructure. Also, they help to take decisions related to planning detailed substratum surveys and minimizing the environmental damage as well as preparing prognoses and economic aspects of investments. Layers with data on geological and economic threats can be analysed concurrently to prepare maps of risk.
