Abstract

Today, the ways of using of municipal geoinformation systems and their functions have not been sufficiently in the literature. In given paper, functions of GIS are screened and discussed based on scientific publications and learning materials. Additionally they studied the appropriation of GIS, solved problems, target group or production process in which indicated operation of these programs. As far as analogic functions often have different names in different sources, ther were unified by merging in categories and reducing to generalized and laconic representation. We screened 45 scientific publications and 10 textbooks, and identified 62 functions. They were divided in 3 categories depending on their final usage result. Systemic functions (13) are those typical for software: queries, visualization and data collecting, import-export. Applied functions (17) allow getting more sensible result, e.g., map ready for use (cartographic function), model (modeling function), new regular occurrence or characteristic of an object (spatial analysis function), or data set (data management function). More attention is paid to high-level functions (32) because they are related to the final aim of designing the municipal GIS: production automatization, economic, research, reference, consolidation etc. The explanation is iven for the most complicated function definitions. The discussion section deals with the issues related to defining and classification of functions and ambiguous interpretation of them. In the conclusion some reflections on high GIS popularity are presented.
