ABSTRACT
During the observation of the karst processes there is a problem visualization of its dynamics. For this can be used geographic information system. All information on existing forms of karst processes can connected to the map based on the coordinates. But there is a need to include into GIS the information about the dynamics of the karst processes. There is a big problem to solve this task in traditional GIS. Development of karst processes has features that affect their visualization in GIS: the shape and the state of karst objects may change; existing karst forms can be replaced with new objects; the frequency of state changes and appearance of new objects is small; cartographic basis (map) may change as a result of the impact of natural phenomena and human activities. To solve the problem can be used spatial-temporal GIS. In paper the basic features of the karst processes development that affect their storage and display on maps are given. The questions of organization of karst processes dynamics visualization on the basis of spatial-temporal maps are presented. Practical issues of linking the objects in map, display of them geometry, determine temporal boundaries of existence of objects are describes. The results of the practical implementation of the visualization system on the example of studies of particular area in Nizhny Novgorod region.

Keywords: karst, GIS, spatial-temporal maps, spatial-temporal GIS, karst development, dynamic.
