ABSTRACT
One of the primary goals of crisis management, was to assure broadly taken public safety during often violent and variable crisis situations. In order to successfully prevent them, it is necessary to consider actual terrain situation, because most of rescue actions have spatial character. It was commonly connected to aspects of men and equipment dislocations between two localizations, which often carried into the roadless track. Taking this into consideration, the article describes the methodology of terrain map preparation for crisis management. The study was based on Polish military agreement NO-06-A015:2012. Due to high variability of crisis situations, it is reasonable to perform these maps in quasi real-time. Therefore, in this research the problem of automation of the military analysis process with ArcGIS software has been undertaken. The source data for analysis was collected in the database, which has been described in the military agreement. It consists of: digital terrain elevation data (DTED), vector smart map level 2 (VML2) as well as civil and military raster maps in different scales. On generated maps were marked areas, where movement of specific type of vehicles is possible. The usage of a modern GIS systems and above mentioned database, allowed to perform short-time and efficient analysis. Whose development, according to the conventional methods, took up to several days. This article showed original solutions of many problems related to numerous inaccuracies and ambiguous notations in the Polish military agreement and disadvantages of military spatial data.

Keywords: military terrain assessment, terrain classification, GIS, spatial analysis, crisis management.
