ABSTRACT

The Environment, Agricultural and Urban management is of valuable importance for
Bulgaria, because of the following:
 Bulgaria is at transition period now with rapid changes in all fields related to
environment, agriculture and urban;
 The adoption of the Common Agricultural Policy of the EU by Bulgaria will require
precise planning of the agriculture which include knowledge about the soil types and
structure, relief characteristics, crop and field statistics, yield forecasting, pests management
and other all of which require use of spatial data;
 The fast degradation of the obsolete industrial installations, rapid development of the
new facilities, the enlargement of new building districts and tourist resorts creates, if not well
managed, considerable risk for the environment;
 As a rule, the administrative control mechanisms react with considerable delay to the
present environment problems and changes;
 The decision makers could be facilitated by the use of modern technologies such as
remote sensing and GIS for better management of territories.
The present paper present some practical examples from the ReSAC projects on the use
of earth observation data integrated together with vector data into the GIS databases for
management of territories in Bulgaria.
