ABSTRACT

This paper is devoted to a quite new development stage of Geoinformatics when science
turns from specialists to mass users. Some time ago Cartography went by the same way.
However, there is a danger to have too many GIS-makers like map-makers and to forget
that Geoinformation systems should be considered not only as entertainment thing but
also as decision-making tool. Especially it is a topical question if we speak about remote
sensing data, which recently became available for each Internet-user, and Google massservice.
The paper shows difference between professional and non-professional (mass)
approaches to geoportals with different examples of existent services and living
projects. Also there is attempt to define term "geoportal" by considering its main
foundations and exploring of the scheme of its work. The paper concerns geoportal
applications for natural resources management.

Keywords: geoportal, remote sensing data, natural resources management
