[1]  The functionality of distributed analytical network systems GIS (Geographic Information Systems) GeoProcessor 2.0, GeoTime II and COMPASS V and elements of geoinformation technology of their use in scientific and applied research are analyzed. At the time of the analysis these systems can download data and plug-ins, distributed either in telecommunication systems or on a user's PC. The article is illustrated by examples of GIS applications for analysis of spatial and spatio-temporal data. The GIS discussed here represent a significant part of the analytical resources of geoinformation environment, elaborated in the framework of the Russian Academy of Sciences (RAS) Presidium Programme "Electronic Earth''.
