Abstract

The main instrument of planning and formation of ecological network in the Moscow region should be geo-information system (GIS) allowing us to receive, organize, update, and process huge volumes of information at effective real-time. GIS systems together with the database will enable to track the most valuable natural territories and keep track of their biodiversity and analyze real-time processes that take place in these areas. The results of these studies should identify the main elements of ecological network – the ‘core area’, ‘transit territory’, ‘buffer zones’, as well as serve as a basis to establish the legal status of the above-mentioned territories. Obtained results will be used in updating the Master Plan of Moscow in its new borders and need to ensure rational development of the annexed territories.

Keywords
