Abstract 

This study aims to show the possibility of using GIS for morphotectonic analysis of the territory that by the use of geomorphic indices helps us in reconstruction the stages of the development of the landforms during a certain period.

On the example of Kremenets Mountains, the created maps of differences of isobase surfaces within the limits of the second, third and fourth orders are analysed. This is one of the methods of morphotectonic analysis. A map of the differences of the isobase surfaces of the second and third orders as well as a map of the differences of the isobase surfaces of the third and fourth orders are a part of created cartographic material. Based on them, two stages of influence of recent tectonic (mainly vertical) movements on this territory have been identified, which together with the processes of denudation and accumulation have formed a general appearance of the Kremenets Mountains.

Within both stages, areas that have been significantly affected by modern tectonic uplifts and lowerings have been identified. The publication also presents several methodological aspects for constructing cartographic material for morphometric analysis.
