Crisis management procedures exist for all levels of administration from municipalities (gmina), through counties (powiat) and provinces (voivodeship) up to the national level, i.e. for the Governmental Team for Crisis Coordination. As specified by the ordinance of the Council of Ministers of 17th December, 2002 on formation and operation of gmina task teams, powiat and voivodeship crisis management teams and the Governmental Team for Crisis Coordination, when preventing results of natural disasters or liquidating their effects, the aforementioned teams work in the following stages: prevention, preparation, reaction and rebuilding. The state of natural disaster may be proclaimed both due to a natural or technological disaster. Almost all these phenomena have a lesser or greater negative impact on the environment. This means that crisis management teams should have reliable information on the state of environment in the area where a natural or technological disaster occurred or may occur posing serious hazards to people or the environment. Such information has to be easily available and up-to-date. Certainly, the serial cartographic studies produced at the Polish Geological Institute and related databases meet these criteria and can be successfully applied in decision-making process in crisis management. Currently, the following serial maps in 1:50,000 scale are produced at the Polish Geological Institute: 1. Detailed Geological Map of Poland (SMGP), 2. Hydrogeological Map of Poland (MHP), 3. Geological-Economic Map of Poland (MGGP), 4. Geoenvironmental Map of Poland (MGsP), 5. Hydrogeological Map of Poland . continuation (MHP), 6. Lithogenetic Map of Poland (MLP). In the paper a table is included presenting contents of these maps, indicating possibilities of their use in the actions undertaken by crisis management teams. Several examples of issues related to various kinds of natural or technological disasters are discussed. The tabulated information and the ways of its use are far from comprehensive and merely point to the usefulness of geoenvironmental data for these purposes. It should be noted, however, that for more detailed specialist analyses and making full use of the entire information (that not always can be directly read from the map), a deep knowledge of Earth sciences or natural sciences is necessary as well as an in-depth analysis of the the content of the maps (e.g., definitions of processes and phenomena, data sources and their up-to-dateness, etc.). This does not diminish the usefulness of the maps/databases for self-government and state administration in their crisis management activities. Another advantage of the maps is that all of them are made in GIS standard, so that their applicabiolity may be enhanced when they are used in analyses combined with other kinds of spatial data, such as communication routes, distribution of health care institutions, distribution of population density, etc.
