Abstract

The combination of landforms and paragenesis of contemporary land-forming processes along the major pipelines comprise both the «morpholithogenic basis of natural landscapes» and the essential component of techno-natural system (geological environment and geological engineering processes). Sequential reasoning with GIS and the specialized geomorphologic zoning lay down the foundation for working out the practical recommendations for safe construction and exploitation of pipelines, rational land use, actions for engineering object security and forecasts of relief and environment dynamics.

Keywords

GIS, cartography, geomorphology, geospatial information.
