King George Island is an extremely natural valuable area in which took place and still takes a lot of research expeditions. There is therefore a real need for efficient and effective management of this area, as well as the coordination of research carried out by scientists of many specialties while protecting the fragile ecosystem of the island. These conditions prompted the authors to create a concept of geographic information system for the island, which meets the above mentioned requirements. The article is an attempt to create the concept and prototype of geographic information system for King George Island (South Shetland Islands archipelago). The work was preceded by an inventory of available spatial data from different sources - field measurements, maps, archival and latest satellite data, aerial photos, orthophotomaps and digital terrain models. All data have been integrated, stored in a database and shared by a geoportal using ArcGIS for Server software. The basic spatial databases and feature classes to be included in the system have been identified. The proposed concept is the beginning of work on the construction of a fully functional geographic information system for King George Island, which will be developed according to the needs of users.
